    It's unclear from the article if this is a ghost promotion or not and whether the country's president is actually a judoka.

    My dear, that's like going into rodeo to avoid horseshit.

    Strange, as this seems to imply that if someone gives you a black belt and you tie it around your waist that you then automatically have the knowledge and skill of a black belt. Seems they are somewhat confusing how to become a politician with how to become a black belt.

    Well, ... doesn't becoming pope imply that you then have the knowledge and skill of a pope.

    Finarishi, my dear friend ...

    I would imagine that popes go through a learning curve similar to how one learns to make perfect burgers ...

    On that occasion, Mrdić told the Serbian president that he will now "find it easier to talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin - considering he will no longer be the only leader with a black belt."



    He obviously is totally unaware that the German Chancellor
    ....................ANGELA MERKEL ............
    is also a Judo Dan Grade holder.
