So Shikamaru is now an agitator who should be executed?
He is still alive when Nail comes; so, no. The kages have a meeting to discuss nail, and Shikamaru is there to without any sense of hostility. So, politics as usual these wonderful friends all trying to kill each-other. So yes, despite trying to kill two of them he'll be forgiven instantly. Just like Orochimaru.
Boruto: Shikamaru Shinden
So apparently, in the Shikamaru Shinden light novel, Shikamaru is stressing the kitten out of, and almost tried assassinating two of the Kage during a meeting to avoid an upcoming war. He doesn’t want his kid to get dragged into another generation of kitten, and thinks he can settle things now. He might’ve been in serious trouble if he wasn’t very close personal friends with two of the other Kage that were at that meeting with all six of them when he tried to kill them.
The villages are also apparently on the verge of war, Kumo is planning to raid another nearby village and Konoha is trying to stick its neck in there to stop it since it’ll drag on to thousands of deaths. Kumo and Iwa are being a kitten about it and trying to aim for a war since they’re out of a job otherwise, and their Daimyo is telling them to go do it.
Naruto doesn’t seem so good at talking things out.
What’s even more interesting to note is that there’s an interesting pattern between the novel and the first Boruto chapter/episode. It implies Naruto’s alliance crumbled and kitten hit the fan so hard that the entirety of Konoha got reduced into nothing but ruins.
I do not believe Kawaki could’ve reduced Konoha into ruins by himself.
I believe Konoha’s destruction was likely orchestrated by an alliance between the other nations to challenge Konoha’s hegemony, arguing Konoha is a threat because they have the most powerful Tailed Beast and is the most prestigious village (Naruto has all the Tailed Beasts in Boruto, realistically all the other villages should be plotting to sabotage Konoha), citing that they are dictating the Elemental Nations and those who disagrees will be crushed by iron fist (Naruto is the most powerful person in the world. Sasuke is the second most powerful person in the world. They both hold the keys to all the nukes in the world).
History seems to repeat itself. Nice “utopia” you got there Naruto, seems like you haven’t learned anything from Hashirama’s mistakes with what went wrong with the system. Madara was right all along. This vicious circle won’t end.

Six kages? Is Sasuke counted as a kage? Please, no.
Well at least this theory is better story then Nail being the cause of everything. I honestly do hope this does in-fact happen, though at the moment I doubt it will.
Wohoo. Naruto is incapable of keeping the peace, because he was never trained for the role of diplomat...or leader...or even just basic administration, and mainly just relies on messiah feel he gives off to get people to do what he wants; also overwhelming power to force those that don't instantly do what he wants. When that fails; this 5 Village Coalition fails with in a generation of its forming. Child of Prophecy destine to bring peace to the world, my ass. Also, this is what happens when you get to keep the super host powers but no one else does -killer bee is probably dead by the way (has been since the chunin exam)- and allow your...best friend to do anything (wet-works/assassination/etc) he wants with your full approval.
From what I read there, my theory is, Kawaki is a spy ... maybe like Kabuto / Rin, send to infiltrate Konoha to assassinate Naruto. He's probably going to succeed because we all know that Naruto is going to be dead, unless they chicken out because they realize that killing Naruto will make the entire fans that's still left supporting this kitten walk away from this abomination franchise, and decide to un-killed him.
If what this guy said is true then that looking forward to 30 volume interview thing is a lie. Because in my opinion they rushing it, unless this (possible) war is not/different than the war that happen in chapter/episode 1 of boruto.
As someone who has read the manga. Kara seems to be a separate organization that does not consider themselves ninja. Now, the other villages may be allied with them while hiding this from konoha, but at the moment that seems doubtful. Also doubtful is that Nail is a spy/infiltrator for this conspiracy. At the moment he is a vessel to receive some seal from the group to do something. Could lead to it, but at the moment it is incredibly stretching to even ponder it.
