Re: Naruto NEEDS to head out to war
I agree with the above. This is what Naruto does every time going all the way back to when he showed up against Haku with fireworks and smoke bombs when things were looking terrible. He did this again againsts Gaara, Kakuzu, Nagato, etc. Naruto is the beacon of hope when all hope appears lost.

Madara doesn't win this war like a regular war, he wins by capturing Bee and Naruto then extracting their Bijou.
I also don't want to see some half-assed complete Naruto run into battle either. There's a reason this training is taking a while, it's hard. I want to see a desperate alliance on the verge of destruction with a giant poof of smoke and Naruto in fused RKS+SM with his toad army and blasting a TBB Rasengan on Sasuke's Susanoo as it's about to cut Kakashi down. That's drama, Naruto following orders on sealing Edo Tensei bodies or knocking off 1,000's of white Zetsu's is not. The war currently consists of the latter.
Plus, people like Kakashi and Gaara may not be the two main characters but they are few of the central characters and need screen time. It's going to be sick to see Kakashi on a "rampage."
