We will be in control of the world. The last sentence in chapter 329, said by the big man himself. The flaw in this sentence is "We". I do not believe that AL would share his power with the other Akatsuki. This whole agenda of world domination is just way too dull. "We'll conquer the world, bwahahahahaha, we're evil!" has been too many times done before. Naruto would turn into a James Bond-movie if that's all there is to it. I believe that we have not seen the true face of the AL yet. Most likely, he'll betray his organization, for whatever reason that may be. Seeing as the AL must be much stronger than the others, and the only thing a man with power wants is more power, I really doubt he would let anyone except him take a bite of the cookie. He might not even want world domination at all, but I'll leave those theories to the better members (basically everyone). Also, I believe that this is the reason why AL is never present during the meetings - he's incredibly afraid of being overrun. Sure, I said he was stronger than the others, but I really don't think he could nail 8 Akatsuki at once. I also believe his location is unknown to the other members. Now, you'll say that the AL is the only one able to initiate and perform the bijuu extracting ninjutsu, but I'd say that Itachi have taken the opportunity and have copied it already... So, AL isn't really all too neccessary. Now, that wouldn't be much of an argument for my theory, since it's just normal for a person not to want to die, right? Well, if AL's true purpose would really be world domination for his little organization, then his death would not matter that much. They'd kill him and replace him, but the agenda lives on, and the Akatsuki would ultimately carry out their duties. But, if AL would have a separate agenda, which none of the other members would know of, then he must absolutely avoid death to make his wishes come through. Whadda'ya think?
