Returning to North Korea

Dennis Rodman
is already planning his next trip back to North Korea, TMZ has learned ... and his goal ... Rodman wants to broker lasting peace between the United States and the DPRK.

Rodman's publicist tells TMZ, for all The Worm's life accomplishments -- the Basketball Hall of Fame, rebounding records, defensive player awards -- the NBA legend says securing peace between Kim Jong Un and Barack Obama would be his greatest honor.  Ya think?

The rep says Rodman wants to use his newly-minted friendship with Kim Jong Un to set the stage for a peace deal, convincing the dictator to engage in talks with Obama. He plans to return to North Korea in the next 6 months to host another kids basketball clinic.

And when he goes back -- Rodman will be a LOT more careful about calling Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung "great leaders" ... in fact, he wants to apologize for making the comment in the first place.

According to the rep, Rodman regrets complimenting the former dictators without fully understanding the extent of their human rights violations. The rep says Rodman is deeply sorry for offending anyone.

Who'da thunk ... diplomacy might be in Rodman's future after all.

Rodman is pretty much working for the IRS and court ordered child support. He would show up at a Klan rally if you paid him in cash.

Dennis, please understand - you're just a 'celebrity'. Don't think you have any influence in Politics. They're a different breed - not for you! Obama's just a "front". Unfortunately, you American's are too brainwashed! Just continue to spend time doing what you're doing... (strip clubs, blowing the money you don't have, etc...) - exactly what your fellow American's are doing! Good luck!

When Rodman goes back, he needs to ask for a tour of Camp 14 (or any of the other detainment camps) and see what a great guy his new little buddy really is. Three generational imprisonments if youever made/make any of the "Kim"s mad. Rodman is being played for a fool and is too dense to see it - Worm is a good nickname. Maybe he can hang out with other dictator-loving celebrities such as Sean Penn and Danny Glover.

Rodman is going back to North Korea? what happened was Pete Rose busy? Since when do we need mentally retarded ex jocks to be diplomats for America? How about sending Khloe and Lamar Odom instead? at least we could laugh at the footage they would shoot for their reality show
