Since this conversation is getting a little pointless (and is looping), I'll step aside. But first, a few quick points:

Sasuke fought on the head of Madara...so he should know what he looks like .

Madara was stalling for time. That is all he was there for. It was not his job to acquire the Kyuubi, nor did he even care about Naruto (at the time...in fact he still doesn't). The entire reason Madara was even out and about was to get Sasuke.

Again, no. Suppressing the Kyuubi when it is actively working within Naruto is not the same as when Naruto is not using the Kyuubi's chakra. Naruto was not using the Kyuubi's chakra against Madara/Tobi, so there was nothing Madara could have done (in regards to the Kyuubi's chakra in Naruto). It would like turning off the water supply when the faucet was already turned off - no difference.

I mentioned this in a chapter thread not that long ago. I was going to include it as one of the poll suggestions, but felt that it might be too spoilerific for those anime fans that might accidentally click on this thread...
