Reborn in Konoha as the Anbu Torturer - Chapter 174
There was a firm conviction in Minato’s voice. It could be heard that he really loved Konohagakure.
He would not allow anyone to do anything to hurt Konohagakure!
These words were not just words!
Minato was really doing this!
Aoba was very clear about it.
After all, he was someone who had watched Naruto Anime.
“Minato, what exactly happened to Kumogakure? Will it affect the village so much?” Aoba asked again. He was more and more curious about what had happened during this period of time.
“Sigh… It’s a long story…” Minato looked at the sky without clouds and could not help but sigh.
“It’s fine. You can speak slowly. I’m listening.” Aoba hurriedly said. He did not climb the stairs with Minato, just to have a romantic time at the top of the Hokage Rock, and then go down without saying anything.
Minato nodded slowly. He had been suppressing these things for a long time. Recently, he had been very depressed.
“In the past few years, because of the difference in the territory resources of each country, the Country of Rain successively declared war on the Country of Iron, Country of Wind, and Country of Fire in order to expand their territory, and thus set off the Second Ninja World War.”
“In the Second Ninja World War, the Country of Fire and Country of Wind of the Five Big Ninja Country was hit hard to varying degrees, and the losses were very serious.”
“This directly broke the balance that was formed after the First Ninja World War.”
“Among the Five Great Ninja Country, the Country of Lightning and the Country of Eath are mortal enemies those forming a restriction on them. However, the Country of Fire and the Country of Wind are currently weak and have yet to recover from the past war. This indirectly makes the Country of Lightning and the Country of Earth Country stronger!”
“Among them, the Country of Lightning is even more supportive of military expansion. According to normal circumstances, there will be a war soon.”
“This is the current situation of the Ninja World!”
“In terms of current strength, we, Konohagakure, are inferior to the powerful Kumogakure. We have always been trying to avoid direct confrontation as much as possible.”
“But you also know what happened not long ago. It started with the death of a Kumogakure Jonin. After his matter, there was a series of chain reactions.”
“Konoha Military Police Force discovered Kumogakure intruders. In the overnight chase, they captured the Third Raikage guard Doroi who was left behind.”
Minato patiently explained everything to Aoba from the beginning.
His thoughts were very clear.
Either he didn’t say it.
Or if he said it, he would say it clearly.
At this point, Aoba’s heart skipped a beat. He immediately understood why the matter had become so serious.
That night in the western forest.
He was at the scene.
He had personally witnessed the strength of the Raikage guard named Doroi.
He was indeed very strong!
He was definitely not inferior to the Fourth Raikage guard Darui that appeared in the anime.
He also had the Storm Release Bloodline Limit.
Even if Aoba used his toes to think about it, he knew that Doroi had a very high position in Kumogakure. The degree of importance he received was definitely very high.
This time, Konoha Military Police Force caught Doroi.
Kumogakure would definitely take the opportunity to make things complicated and demand a large amount of compensation based on returning their people.
According to the future experiences that Aoba knew.
Kumogakure only lost an unnamed leader of a diplomatic mission group.
It can force the Hyuga clan of Konohagakure to sacrifice Hyuga Hizashi to die; otherwise, it will be Hyuga Hiashi.
From this point, it could be seen how powerful Kumogakure’s power was, even highlighting the Third Hokage’s cowardice to the extreme.
“The matter of Konoha Military Police Force catching Third Raikage guard Doroi was not reported to the Third Hokage. They completely concealed it, which also made the village miss the best opportunity to negotiate…” Minato continued.
“They actually concealed it?!” Aoba’s brows fiercely jumped. What kind of operation is this? Can you still play like this?
“Yes, the village higher-ups only knew that Konoha Military Police Force caught two Jonin Ninjas. Because of this, the Third Hokage did not take the initiative to negotiate but waited for Kumogakure to come over.”
“But no one expected…”
“More than a month has passed and the envoy from Kumogakure came, but it turned out to be for Doroi!”
“If we knew that we had caught Doroi, we could have used Doroi to propose conditions to Kumogakure.”
“It’s too late now…”
Minato shook his head and could not help but sigh in his heart. Sometimes, things become so helpless because some teammate could make the right choice and operation.
“Minato, I don’t understand. Since Doroi is in our hands, what’s the difference between early negotiations and late negotiations? We still have the initiative in our hands. Doroi is an intruder, a captive that we caught!” Aoba said in confusion. He could feel Minato’s helplessness, but he really did not understand why Konohagakure was so cowardly and had been compromising all this time. This was not a solution at all.
“Because Doroi is dead,” Minato said in a deep voice.
Aoba suddenly realized the difference between before and after.
When they were alive, they could negotiate regardless of whether it was early or late. The core point was just the issue of letting them go.
But once people die.
Then, Kumogakure could use force to threaten Konohagakure.
There was nothing to restrain them anymore.
In this matter…
Uchiha has screwed up!
“It was because Doroi had died; the situation had become more delicate. The Country of Lightning and the Country of Earth had been initially restricting each other, but the Country of Earth’s recent standing had become blurry…”
“If the Country of Earth were to keep a close eye on the Country of Lightning, then the Country of Lightning might not dare to start a war against the Country of Fire rashly.”
“But if the Country of Earth does not intend to target the Country of Lightning…”
“Or perhaps the Country of Earth wants to take the opportunity to deal with the Country of Fire together and wants some share…”
“Then the instantly tilted balance of power will cause war!”
Minato analyzed the current situation and saw the problem very clearly. This was also the main reason why he was very depressed.
“I originally thought that the war would come in a few more years. This would give the village more time, but now it seems that it won’t be too long.”
Minato’s face was very heavy. When he said these words, he still did his best to ease the situation, not wanting Aoba to have too much anxiety in his heart.
In his heart.
After Kumogakure’s envoy left this time.
The battle between the two countries would come.
When that time came.
The Country of Earth and the Country of Wind would not just sit back and watch the battle.
They would definitely choose to join the battle.
The Third Ninja World War.
It would then erupt!
The incident with Doroi.
It would become the fuse for the Third Ninja World War, directly driving the war to happen.
Aoba nodded. He was a fool if he could not understand the current situation when Minato spoke so clearly.
But to a certain extent.
Doroi’s death had something to do with him.
Because of his appearance.
It was like a butterfly flapping its wings, which triggered the butterfly effect that led to Doroi’s death.
At this moment, Aoba recalled what had happened in the past.
If he had not guided the Konoha Military Police Force and Danzo to the western forest, perhaps Kumogakure would have left after some time.
However, this kind of thing was extremely humiliating.
It could be said that…
If they wanted to come, they could come in.
If they wanted to go out, they could go out at any time.
Konohagakure’s barrier could not stop the strong Kumogakure Ninja at all.
If it weren’t for the strong response of the Uchiha Clan that night.
In the future, Kumogakure could experience the joy of going in and out at any time.
Except after that night.
Aoba thought of the matter of Konoha Military Police Force, looking for him to read memories.
If he had gone then.
Perhaps he would have seen Doroi.
Things might have changed.
Aoba also did not dare to guarantee what changes would happen. Was it possible that it would be better than now?
Just based on the present results.
The death of Doroi.
It had replaced the disappearance of Third Kazekage.
It had become a pivotal event to break the fragile and peaceful situation of the current world.
There was a great possibility that it would trigger the Third Ninja World War.
Aoba’s eyes suddenly lit up as he realized something terrifying.
If the fuse changed!
Then the main reason for the war would be transferred from Sunagakure to Konohagakure.
The relationship between all the inter-war parties might change.
The history of the whole Ninja World would change.
The plot of Naruto that he had seen before crossing over should not continue on the original path.
It was possible that the fates of many people would be changed.
The ones who did not change were the people.
Their personalities and ways of doing things will determine their chances of this change.
“Things are getting more and more troublesome!” Aoba could not help but sigh. He could have said that he knew the past and the future. Now, the future was gradually changing. What he knew was only some secret information.
“I thought you had a way!”
Minato turned to look at Aoba. When he heard Aoba say ‘wait’, he thought that there would be some new discoveries. In his eyes, Aoba had some sly ideas.
After he heard Aoba say that it was getting troublesome.
He also understood.
This current situation was not something that a person could change.
Aoba looked at Minato. He thought that Minato did not want the flames of war to spread to Konohagakure, and he only hoped that there would be checks and balances between the inner and outer forces. He did not want a real fight to happen.
“I have a way to fight against Kumogakure!”
