What does everyone think about the AL's plans as revealed in the latest chapter? Personally, I think the whole world domination thing is overrated. It seems beneath the AL. I mean, the Akatsuki are so powerful already, they could would easily achieve power on their own. Tangent: I am curious to see why each of them decided to join the group in the first place. Maybe Kishimoto will do the back stories for each of them like he did with Kakashi. Anyway, this whole plan seems more Oro's bag, who ironically left the group (I mean isn't he kinda doing that anyway, maybe on a lesser scale). I think it have been a lot more sinister if they were all existentialists or something, and wanted to destroy the world completely. At least in that case the bijyuu would play a more prominent role. It seems in the AL's actual plan that they are just an after thought. But then again, it may not be his ACTUAL plan. Who knows, like everyone one else in the Akatsuki, the AL may have some ulterior motive as well.
