Of course they would try and retaliate, but since Obito can literally fade into nothingness (the only reason Minato even knew Obito was there was because Obito wanted him to) he could have escaped with no one the wiser. And this would have been perfect since Konoha would begin the search for Kushina, and their first target would be Kumo - the next strongest nation and the natioin that kidnapped Kushina in the past. Imagine how great a war between Kumo and Konoha would have been for Madara's plan. In fact, with the possible mutual destruction, the Kyuubi, Hachibi and Nibi would have all been in Obito's hand. And this could have all been achieved by not fighting Minato let alone anyone of importance.

I agree with your logic, but extra ammo is always helpful and there is no reason to waste resources. Hell, if he had enough Sharingan, Obito could have implanted them in the Zetsus and the army would have been exponentially more powerful (imagine an army of zetsus able to use Izanagi or MS jutsus, if even a few of them had Amaterasu, then 1000s could have been killed by just those few).

Edit: to speculate, it is possible that Obito killed the clan in order to prevent an MS from breaking the eternal Tsukuyomi (since only an MS can break a Tsukuyomi...well an MS and Sasuke's eyes)
