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.

Instead of meeting with Netanyahu over the Iranian nuclear threat that is nearing completion, Obama met with the head of the Pastafarian society for Dress like a Pirate Day. It figures he needs Dennis Rodman to help conduct nuclear proliferation and human rights talks with a North Korean dictator. I am kind of stunned.


Would this have been going on with Hilary still in operation? I think Kerry is a totaly player who goes along to get along. He seems to have no backbone whatsoever. Just ask the swift boat soldiers who he abaondend in combat as their leader.


Is North Korea going to start making demands on the US that are going to be honored in the name of peace and a 13 course dinner? What is going on?

What the f**k makes him think he's anywhere close to being qualified to broker a peace deal? I mean, c'mon, he didn't even know about the extent of human rights violations happening every day in N. Korea?

Rodman, please shut the F**K up and disappear back into whoever's gay ass you recently crawled out of.

He can't go back right away. It will take the North Korean leadership several months to stop laughing.
Kim has evidence to support his opinion that Americans are clowns. No wonder he felt safe threatening the U.S. with nuclear war.

Please make sure you pack your bags and move there. You shame our country for doing this. Once he is on the plane, don't let him back into our country.

The Logan Act prevents private citizens from negotiating for the US government. Charge him with violating the Logan Act, and stop all this stupidity.
