Ok this is the story in shippudden
Orochimaru attempts to do unpleasant things to Sasuke, but Sasuke instead decides to do unpleasant things to Orochimaru and kills him before stomping off. He fights Deidara who plans to bomb the local Taco Bell and throw shoes as George Bush, but he blows himself up instead to kill Sasuke, but fails. Sasuke then gathers together the descendants of Count Dracula, Frankenstein and the Creature from the Black Lagoon to track down his brother Itachi. Lady Tsunade sends out Naruto, Sakura, Sai, Kakashi, Yamato, Hinata, Shino, Kiba & Akamaru to find Sasuke. Sasuke locates Itachi and they play Guitar Hero until Itachi has his eyes poked out and dies (needless to say the manga lost 95% of its audience and recieved a lot of angry hatemail from fangirls). Sasuke discovers from Tobi that Itachi was asked by the Third Hokage to mess up the Uchicha clan for fun, but he took it to the extreme. Sasuke vowed to blow up Konoha - unfortunately Pein beats him to it.
