AFTER he dies in front of you,you meet Madara and believe every word HE tells you? THAT is showing he is still a child as well, easily manipulated.
BUT Naruto has dangerous jutsu just as Sasuke does so in that aspect they are similar. They just are driven by different forces. Besides i think bringing Sasuke back isn't his plan anymore. i think wants to destroy Akataski. bring peace then stop sasuke, feeling that when THEY fight they will no longer be the same as they were before.("when we fight, we will both die.")
remember when Gram pa Toad said in order to get NE you have to DIE? well he didn't MEAN actual death just be still as if you are dead. so i think Kishi is doing that again.
People are kinda taking Sasuke lightly IMHO. Think it, if Harashirma, Minato, (and Sasuke dosen't even know that the Tsuchikage), attempted to but couldn't take out Madara, what could he do? He's at least attempting to play Madara like he did vs. Oro. Until he knows more, or gains more power that he's more confident in defeating Madara, he, and everyone that Madara calls his 'ally' has no choice but to go along with what Madara says. This guy (Madara), while overall wack, took out Konan with one arm, and one eye. Lastly remember when Hebi/Taka was attempting to leave the Akatsuki before the Kage Arc, Madara simply 'morphed' in front of them, and he did the same thing to Minato, repeatedly. If one dosen't have an answer, you go with the status quo until you feel you have an advantage, or in the least near equal.
