    Default Konoha's stance on Sasuke

    So I've been wondering... what's up with Konoha's approach to the Sasuke situation?

    Usually when a shinobi turns missing-nin, the spurned village usually takes a hunt and kill approach. So why's Konoha being so soft with Sasuke? Because he's Naruto's friend? Because they believe in Naruto's ability to change people? If I recall correctly, he already had that chance and almost died.

    If I'm Konoha, I'm of the opinion that letting Sasuke run loose poses the danger that another village might acquire the secret of the sharingan. This would be a devastating possibility given that Sasuke was the only sharingan user left in the village, thus weakening the possibility of successful defense should it be used against them.

    I think the guy in ROOTS had it right when he tried to off Sasuke. Konoha should have attempted assassination as soon as they knew Sasuke defected, albeit covertly. That's what I would have done if I were hokage.

    I don't know if this topic's been done. If it has, sorry. If it hasn't, discuss.

    Most likely because of his Uchiha blood and they want him back to revive the Uchiha clan in konoha. To increase their power, so I think it has to do with more with increasing the village power then helping Naruto. Did ROOTS really stop hunting Sasuke or only Sai did?

    its because its a story-loop, the author probably already forgotten about the missing nin hunt rule.

    Though Sasuke has betrayed the village, he hasn't committed a real crime. Killing Orochimaru would get him rewarded if he was still part of the village and all of Sasuke's actions haven't directly opposed a village's interest.

    Thats what makes Sasuke an interesting case.

    Though, on the flip side, Sasuke did resist the attempts to bring him back to Konoha and nearly killed Naruto twice. So, those would also be good reasons for the village to treat him the same as Itachi.

    Well Sasuke was with Orochimaru, so it was not that easy to kill him off.

    Just like it was not easy to get Naruto, because he was with Jiraiya.

    Whether he did anything wrong isn't my main problem with his coming back. The problem is how realistic his returning would be in the first place.

    Sasuke left the village on his own accord, to side with the man who nearly crippled the village and killed the 3rd. And on top of that, he tried to kill his pursuers both times Konoha sent a rescue party out. So, on the off chance he wasn't incarcerated for decades or executed, how would he possibly be able to live peacefully with Konoha, who basically hated Naruto by association? Everything would hang over his head for the rest of his life. I don't see how he'd ever be happy or find redemption, even if he wanted to.

    Personally, I've thought for years that Kishi was setting up the story to make Sasuke's return impossible. After all, even Naruto, who's very way of living life has dramatically changed others, wasn't able to get through to him.

    True. But I'm talking about Konoha's intentions. They don't WANT to kill him, and that's the source of my confusion.

    It would piss Naruto off. I think it would be great for Naruto to kill emoboy X.

    maybe they saw him as their only hope to get rid of itachi.and its also possible that tsunade and jiraiya wanted to make naruto go after him,hoping he could make the heir and their only hope of revivng the uchiha clan return.
    but the best reason is that since sasuke was with oro,killing him would have been very difficult,and unwise to attempt.that oro was actually alive until sasuke killed him;is proof.

    I think the Hidden Leaf isnt really concerned with Sasuke because, he was last associated with the Hidden Sound village, which has Orochimaru's. Though Sasuke is an enemy of Konoha by association with Orochimaru, Konoha itself is being cautious with declaring war with Sound, as it WILL give rise to several problems, mostly politically and strategically. Attacking Sound will leave Leaf with a weaker defense and will thus be a target for other villages.

    However, I think that when Konoha gets the chance to get him in either a neutral or friendly territory, hunter nins will be sent out. He is, after all, a ninja of the Hidden Sound.
