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.

Stupid really is as stupid does. Dennis Rodman is an uneducated neanderthal. There will always be ignorant ppl in the world. If I got upset every time one of them did something idiotic to get the attention that they so desperately need, I'd be one of them. I'm done with this story. Next!

Rodman can't stay there. Madonna still needs him to cater to her sexual needs. And to teach her daughter what to look for in a man.

Our black president sure gets the best to representatives for our country. Next he'll send Fav of Love to show the Koreans how to tell time. Jane Fonda is still alive. Why not send her to tell the Korean's how peaceful our country is. Or send Ms Obama to tell them that they need to lose weight.
