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.

This really isn't surprising. I've been saying for years that if there's one person that could bring the US and North Korea together in peace it's Dennis Rodman.

This is weird, but I had a vibe this was going to happen when I heard about his first trip.
Hey, if he can help, more power to him!!!!
Dictators L-U-R-V-E celebrities...and flattery.
I think it's kind of brilliant.
It's a version of using very beautiful women as spies.
(BTW, Un's wife always looks like a hostage every time I see her. She looked totally freaked-out, sitting at the basketball game with Un and Dennis.)

Yup    

Dennis rodman is a naive twit; he was shown exactly what the North Korean commies wanted him to see. He didn't see the thousands of people who STARVE every day in the north, they didn't discuss why the average north korean man is 4" shorter than the average south korean man due to MALNUTRITION, they didn't discuss why the north korean government sees fit to abuse, torture & murder it's own citizens if they utter 1 syllable against the commie government. He's a moron, and has the credibility of a pair of bozo's clown shoes...
