Many politics think that they can solve all problemas by fighting with other countries, when we can make peace and good relations through dialogue.

He was a great person for sure! RIP Inoki Antonio.

It was painful looking at him on TV this last year. He looked like he was on his deathbed, yet getting dragged to all these events barely able to muster any breath.

He was just that kind of uniting character, though. Thanks Inoki!

I hope that he isn’t remembered for his stage show fight against Ali -that was shambolic!

RIP. A true legend and one of my personal favorites, right up there with Giant Baba.

An interesting observation.

Perhaps, because - "Respect" is something that is earned, and not taken for granted by Birth ?

Inoki san, made a name for himself as a Professional Wrestler - and turned to Politics to "continue the fight".... regardless whether or not, we may disagree, or agree with his views, the fact is, that he prove himself within his Sporting field, was worthy enough, to respect him.

Those who actually knew him, speak volumes :
