After reading the previous chapters you will find out that Kumogakure ( Village Hidden in the Clouds) is to play an important role in the near future, thus a question surely follows:
What are the political relations between Kumogakure and Konohagakure gonna be like?
The Raikage is obviously not quite pleased that an ex-Konoha shinobi "captured" his brother.
Plus, there have been some minor conflicts/issues in the past like the Hyuuga incident...
And if the messengers arrive in time for Pains party and get killed, that would just worsen ther relations. If not that, Danzou could very well use them in someway or another since he is also becoming a very important figure in the manga.
Also taking in consideration that there have already been two great shinobi wars and that the atmosphere is still quite negative amongst them, could a third great war follow after Raikage finds out that Konoha has been greatly weakened, AGAIN? He attacks Konoha, Sunagakure helps Konoha and the other countries just won't sit around idly and watch(most probably).
So, I would like to hear/read your views on this matter. What do YOU think is gonna happen?
