Sasuke's not an idiot with the path he chose to take, Kishi was, because Sasukes 'personality' was never really developed beyond his ties with Itachi/and his family, and Team 7. There were no bonds built, and through whatever Sasuke was saying, he was more goal oriented toward completing his task whatever they were, whether it was taking out Akatsuki Members, fighting with Kages, or fighting with Danzou. Sasuke's character hasn't had a 'true' goal since Itachi died. He just goes along with the wind, in whatever direction it blows, that kinda sucks for the co-star, or the 2nd supposed most important character withing a manga story.
