Example2: Attempted murder. After gaining the power of the CS, Sasuke attemps to kill naruto so he can gain the power of the MS.
Naruto allows the Kyuubi to come out just so he can get back at oro for making sasuke leave. As you know, naruto in kyuubi form nearly killed sakura.
I know, but still. Naruto knows how dangerous the kyuubi is, but he still let him out.
As you can see with these examples if you look at a character fom differant points of veiw, you can find the very things you criticise other characters for.
Of course this is also influinced by preference. Still, I think you get my point
Finally a dispute with my good friend.
Are you really saying that Naruto would put Sasuke over the village? That is what you said. If I recall, Naruto was allowed on several occasions to try and bring Sasuke back, failed, and was told in a nut shell "perhaps at a later date but now we have more pressing matters - and you failed".
Concerning the Kyuubi, Naruto lost control of his emotions. Yamato had to be the one to explain to Naruto that it was his fault that Sakura was hurt. Since then he's never used it. So he places the value of everyones safety before the value of Sasuke. If he truly put Sasuke first he would have left the village in pursuit.
As you can see I gracefully abolished your argument at every turn and now put the ball in your court. The game is on!
