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 a sick man, in my opinion. He failed miserably at getting sober (his behavior on Celebrity Rehab was awful; he made a complete and utter fool of himself.) This jaunt to North Korea is an example of his mental deterioration. He is not a very smart person, and has no idea what trouble he's causing. IMO, the Secret Service needs to pay him a visit.

North Korea is so behind the times, they probably think he still plays b-ball professionally. Why doesn't he just stay over there?

File under "You can't make this **** up." From the New York Times, Feb. 5:

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea is not known for its subtlety, famous instead for its soaring patriotic rhetoric and threats to turn the capital of its rival, South Korea, into a "sea of fire."

But even by those standards, the latest volley of North Korea propaganda is noteworthy. Posted recently on YouTube, a video by one of the North’s propaganda agencies shows an animated version of Manhattan in flames — part of a dream in which a young Korean man envisions a glorious future of rocket launchings and the reunification of the Korean Peninsula. The background music to the scenes of launchings and destruction: an instrumental version of "We Are the World."

These people are war crazed. They just made their ICBM launcher and now are talking tough to the USA, demanding that the UN impose no sanctions on the today.


Isreal has the same threat from Iran, but instead of keeping tabs on it like Netanyahu, we have leadership that is waiting for Dennis Rodman to set up the next pig roast.

Dennis Rodman is an f*ing joke. He always has been and always will be. And, if he is what the leader of North Korea generalizes Americans to be, no wonder they threatened us.

What else would we expect from a man whose IQ is no higher than a speed limit sign.
