Re: Naruto wasn't talking about "not being able to beat sasuke"
In any piece of literature, often the reader is forced to read between the lines to fully comprehend the message being portrayed. With that said, I agree with Myth on this one, Naruto could have obvy rolled sasuke, at that point in time. Now is debatable, as we have seen. After re-reading the last 3 chapters, i noticed that the whole time it seemed like Naruto was getting used to this new sasuke, and once he realized what sasuke had become, he knew that he could either kill him and be done with it, or be the archetypal hero and "save" the day. In this case, "saving the day" is bringing peace without killing.
Damn I'm at a disadvantage, my argument has to actually make sense.
