What countries did in compare to what akatsuki was doing was abysmal in comparison. I think her sins compare to nothing what ninjas do on a daily basis, she fought for peace but in a different manner; many rain villlagers would call her actions justified while others wouldn't. Its all realative.
Are you forgetting the fact that we have already seen that entire portion of his face WITHOUT the head bandage on? And, as clear as day, he has ONLY 2 wrinkles - the larges ones under his eye.
He has not 'aged' significantly within the space of time between then and current events, so, in conclusion, it is indeed rain.
Some wrinkles are "hidden" well and only appear when certain facial expressions are made. You can clearly see what's rain there and what's not. The rain is made up by vertical lines that are close to eachother making a "stream of water". The horizontal lines are part of his face, if some of them are shown now and not before it only means that Madara is now making another expression that shows his wrinkles, or should I say natural facial lines more clearly. 100 chapters ago Madara looked surprised, with other words his face got stretched and got more "smooth". When you tighten your muscles the way you do when you're angry, as seen by his eye's expression more lines appear easily and your real features show more easily.

Sasuke isn't just one guy. He is the very symbol that Naruto must fight. A guy who is bearing the hatred of many generations, even more, the only Uchiha (besides Madara who is hopeless), the symbol of the elder brother, the eternal fight. Like Pain, Sasuke is the result of all what's going wrong in this world. This is how Kishi is portraying him anyway. You can think that Kishi did it badly if you want, but I think we can't say that Sasuke is just "one guy" here since Kishi made him a symbol.
Besides Sasuke is part of the big things in the world even from the big countries point of view. After all he was the one (even if manipulated by Madara) who caused the Kages emergency meeting, the one who attacked the Kages, the one who killed Danzou, the one who is now in the top list in the bingo book for every country....He is in every Kages and other ninja leaps now.

I hope if nothing else Konan manages to reveal not only his whole face but some of his body? Maybe asking too much there but it's really annoying me now not knowing...well anything true about Tobi.
it is possible that tobi's faced might be revealed even more now... especially since has to do something drastic to escape that huge paper sea... i would be just fine with his face being revealed.plz kishi make it happen. that would bring alot of i told u soos in the forum
one more possibility.:
Reason why Madara seems weak in this battle could be because he isn't Madara at all. He could be just a Clone of that Aloe-Vera. So when konan seals him, Madara appears right behind her and capture her..
Madara is ruining this manga more for me. He is such a sucky bad guy. And I don't care what Kishi makes up for madara giving Nagato rinnegan. Its retarded.
Jiraiya took her out in two techs...godlike much.

Anyways in all seriousness I think he will be unmasked. The main reason is kishi has been teasing it for so long its getting annoying. Kisame's flash back:
Kishi: "Just trollin'!"
And now the mask being somewhat destroyed.
Madara isn't the final bad guy its Naruto's destined lover, Sasuke.
