The Juubi had spat out an immense glob of explosive chakra and sent it flying hundreds of miles to the headquarters of the combined ninja armies. It was clear to everyone there that given the speed and destructive power of the Juubi's attack there was no hope or either escape or survival.

With that accomplished there was nothing more to do but await the arrival of their deaths. Looking up they could see the sky become a fiery red.

Inoichi turned to his old friend and teammate. "I've always loved you."

"Yes, I know."
