A bridge towards peace; the will of fire still endures!
Rokudaime Hokage, Rokudaime Rikudou Sennin Uzumaki Naruto
Nagato seems to have, for the most part, channeled his feelings of bitterness and vengeance towards shinobi in general. However, he did definately get rougher with Konoha than he needed to be. There was no reason for him to destroy their village with the massive Shinrai Tensei, or to talk to Tsunade/Naruto about his vision/views, or to kill the beaten ninjas who didn't know Naruto's location. He used excessive force with Konoha that I don't think would have been directed towards, say, Sunagakure, at least not on that level.
Nagato could've just simply been using Jiraiya for his own purposes, and on the way warped Jiraiya's discussion about peace to justify himself.
Let's wait for Nagato to finish his story before we start throwing around claims such as these. Nagato could very well touch on the subject of Jiraiya. It could very well be that since Jiraiya went out of his way to train them, Nagato looked passed the fact that Jiraiya was a Konoha ninja for a time.
My opinion it just shows how great of a villain Nagato is. Putting his own emotions aside, and viewing the world independently with a blunt cynical eye.
Nagato felt pain for his parents death, but nowhere does it say He bore a resentment against Konoha or the Leaf ninjas, but rather He speaks of the whole system, not just one country in particular.
And He speaks of hatred in a dispassionate clinical fashion, and tries to rationalize his world and the actions of those who live in. His conclusions bore from his own life experiences.
Even his act of destroying Konoha can be viewed as simply perpetuating Yahikos principle, that people will only stop hurting each other when they understand each others pain firsthand.
His parents death, unjust, by mistake, caught in a battlefield that never related to them, or their lives. That was his pain.
