He would sacrifice his own life sure but he'd never play with anyone else's.
But narutos Obsession with getting sasuke back must effect others. Tsunade probably has to keep an eye on naruto so if he gets any info on sasukes whereabouts, he wont go chasing after him. My point is, narutos obsession does effect everyone around him. If anything, his concern becomes everyones concern. Narutos a jinchuuriki so he shouldnt put himself in positions to get captured by the AKA. Whic in turn would make konaha go all out to get him back, leaving them vulnerable. I think you can see where Im going with this.
