I'm really disappointed in Sasuke and Sakura (Spoilers)

Honestly, it sorta broke my heart to see him go and actually attempt to kill Sakura. Not only that, but attempt to do it behind her back. I mean he tried to kill Naruto back during their first encounter, but was obviously stopped, and back then I thought nothing of it, but him trying to get Sakura in the back killed. I mean his character has reached a place that seems to have no point of return. 
 
My original feeling was that there would be another time skip in which Naruto had become Hokage, and Sasuke had formed his own village and thus had become the Kage of that village (maybe Sound?), and the two would clash, leading to a battle where maybe both of them die, but preferably not. If they did die, I would hope for one of the last frames to be Sakura holding a child with blond hair.
 
Another thing that bugged me, was when Sakura said I love you Naruto, my mind was blown, because the scene was playing out exactly how I wanted it too. Finally Sakura had realized how much Naruto cared, and she returned that affection. But of course all that went to hell as well. I don't know about you guys, but I'm one of those people who wants Naruto to get with Sakura, way more then with Hinata. Hinata is nice and all, but I thought it was all leading in that direction. Let's hope it does.
 
End rant.

Sasuke is one f'ed up dude now.  He will do anything to get revenge for his clan and will stop anyone in his path.  As for you time skip thing, I would go with that.  It sounds like something that could happen if there is another time skip in the story.  As for the Naruto love triangle, I personally don't care who Naruto ends up with.  From the looks of it he will end up with Sakura, but I could be wrong.  I guess we will see how the manga plays out over time.

Do you think so? I mean Sakura still has that thing for Sasuke, but Sasuke has gone crazy, so I don't know how it would go.

I agree, pretty messed up, though I think the only person in naruto's heart is sasuke.
 
Like, at the end of the day the time they spent together was incredibly small, yet they're still screwed up about it. Pretty impressive if you ask me.

I also think Sakura and Naruto.

Sakura and Naruto will NEVER happen.
 
She loves Naruto, but it's more friendship love. Even when she told Naruto she him, she was lying to herself and Naruto spotted that in an instant. The only reason Sakura tried to kill Sasuke is because of that love.
 
Naruto and Hinata need more devolopment. One minute she confesses her love, the next it's like nothing ever happened.

Pretty much agree with what he said. Its kinda stupid how Hinata confessed then nothing ever happened and it was never mentioned or brought up again.

I disagee. It may seem impossible now, but it can happen, just like how it seems impossible that he'll save Sasuke, but that will happen as well.

I don't know why you think Sasuke trying to take out Sakura is surprising. Any affection between the two has been a one-way road from Day 1. The only person in the whole world Sasuke has any sort of affection for at all is Naruto and he'd still fight him to the death. Honestly, it seems Sasuke is determined to go down the same path his brother did. He's going to become the villain and do as many horrible things as he can for the right reasons hoping eventually Naruto punishes him for his crimes.
 
As for Sakura... she's just messed up. And why shouldn't she be? She knew how Naruto felt about her and made him to do the worst thing she could possibly ask him to do. Bring Sasuke back to her. Since then, virtually everything Naruto has done has been to fulfill that promise. So much so that the running theme of Shippuden for her has been "You don't have to go that far!"
Even if Naruto is going after him for his own reasons now, Sakura still feels responsible for putting the burden on him. That's a huge amount of guilt to live with.
 
For a while now, Sakura's objective has been to protect Naruto at all costs. She even set out to kill Sasuke to that end. The reason she couldn't go through with it is the big mystery.
 
Is it because she's still crushing on him? Kind of hard to swallow. One would hope that after three years she'd have moved on from a one-sided crush.
Is it because she's sentimental about her former teammate? A bit more realistic, though is puts a dampener on her resolve to protect Naruto from Sasuke... unless...
It could be because she still hopes Naruto can save him? Not really supported by anything, but a possible factor.
 
Really though, she's confused out of her mind. Which, for a tsundre character, is pretty much the default state of being.

They've really altered Sasuke's mindset after the Killer Bee fight.  Up to that point I could understand his actions.   
 
He left to train with Orochimaru because he wanted to kill the guy who killed his family.  He didn't join him to take over the world.  Orochimaru would make him fight hundreds of cronies, cronies who probably have criminal records a mile long, but Sasuke wouldn't kill them.  Orochimaru would comment on it and Sasuke's attitude was always like, "I'm just gonna kill random people.  I'm here to learn to kill one guy.  I'll kill him."  When he kills Orochimaru, he does some speech about how bad it is to manipulate people and use them as pawns. 
 
After killing Orochimaru he frees the people he imprisoned.  During the Killer Bee fight he has a flashback to his old teammates and when he sees how hard his current team is fighting, he unlocks a new power trying to protect them. 
 
But after that, he's pure psycho.  He kills random people for shits and giggles and he impales his teammates with no hesitation or regard for them.  Maybe I missed it, but there's a massive change in how he approaches things somewhere between him fighting Killer Bee and the next fight he gets into that came out of the blue. 
 
Can't say I'm disappointed though.  Sasuke's been the focal point of a crapton of great fights in the anime and he has a lot more coming.  If plot holes and making him a psycho are the price to pay for great fights on a regular basis, I'm all for it.

I've just started watching Naruto, and I've got to say I was hoping Naruto would over Sakura and go for Hinata, who is a much more interesting character to me. :(
 
I mean, with her fight against Neji, I gained quite a bit of respect for her. I'm a bit of an introvert myself, and I know what it's like to have to force yourself to speak up. Sakura is a little flat and annoying as a character, at least up to the point I'm at.

This isn't true at all. Sasuke formed a real bond with Sakura, Naruto and even Kakashi. They were best friends, and if Sasuke hadn't seen Itachi after the Chuunin exams, he might have continued to soften to the point where he would choose his friends over the killing of Itachi. He risked his life to save Sakura from Gaara and also risked his life for Naruto saving him from Haku. He was a good person, and really cared for them, he just couldn't show it.  When he left Konoha he thanked Sakura for everything she had done for him and felt towards him. So I disagree. It was never one way. Which is why it hurts me. After killing Itachi his mind broke, and he is being manipulated by Madara. That's why I feel sorry.
 
@sickVisionz:
I think his mind broke down after he killed Itachi, and in that moment of weakness, Madara changed him.
