And when he learn to control Kyubi, the I my one who will be able to defeat him will be Madara, maybe... With your logic you probably think Sasuke is the weakest Akatsuki member, since he's the newest, so everyone who joined before him is stronger. Well except Itachi, of course, because in the manga he beat Itachi without MS even though Itachi let him win,but you probably don't think that because you believe what you see, you don't really think anythig through or read everything. You saw Kakshi tell naruto the elemental wheel, and fire>wind, so you saw Itachi die right infront of sasuke So you probably believe sasuke was stronger then him. And if you read everything, and process it and think about it alittle, you'd realize both the above statments are wrong,(but you probably think they're both true, lol) but you don't do that. And you don't listen when people who do read thoroughly and think alittle try to logically explain it to you. You have no idea what youre talking about, and you need to get a clue because it's really annoying, for everyone.
Actually Naruto is very capable of beating Itachi and Kisame. FRS much, as well as superior taijutsu, speed, powerful attacks, etc. Summons could easily allow time to distract them to land FRS, Kisame can't absorb FRS if he can't react to it in time and as far as I can see, Itachi isn't fast enough to dodge one.
Other than that I agree with your points.
In any case, since the arguments supporting to Sasori amount to basically nothing and it's clear Naruto wins this, I will lock the thread.
