    Dennis Rodman to North Korea: 'I come in peace'

    Flamboyant former NBA star Dennis Rodman and three members of the famed Harlem Globetrotters arrived in North Korea Tuesday to "entertain and inspire" with their basketball skills while they film a TV show."I come in peace. I love the people of North Korea!" Rodman, 51, said on Twitter Tuesday.
    The weeklong visit comes at a time of heightened tension between the United States and North Korea, a result of Pyongyang's pursuit of a nuclear program. Just days ago, North Korea threatened "miserable destruction" in response to routine military exercises planned between South Korea and the United States.

    Apparently Dennis Rodman and some Harlem Globetrotters are at the DPRK to entertain im guessing a very very select few of North Koreans. Im guessing they wont see the rampant malnutrition in the country. Also some pretty ignorant tweets from Rodman are available on the article.

    Dennis Rodman on Diplomacy Mission to North Korea.....Mind if I this UP DS?

    Dennis Rodman, former NBA bad boy, aka “The Worm,” took off on a plane from Beijing on Tuesday in an attempt to create some kind of bridge to the world’s most isolated nation -- via basketball.

    Of their plans in the communist country, Vice said they would try to initiate some "basketball diplomacy" by running a sports camp for Korean kids and challenging locals to games. They have also arranged an exhibition match with what are said to be North Korea's best athletes. Vice told AP they hope the game might be attended by North Korea’s “Supreme Leader,” Kim Jong-un.

    In South Korea, the news that Rodman and co. would be visiting their hostile neighbors to the north -- with whom the country is officially still at war – was received with surprise and skepticism. Headlines in local press read, “NBA’s Enfant Terrible Going to NK?” and “Why is Roadman Going to Pyongyang?” Most local stories in Seoul on Tuesday suggested the visit was untimely, in that it’s been just two weeks since the North’s most recent nuclear test, which Western leaders said would only further isolate the country.....snip~

    They say it is illegal to have tattoos and piercings in NKorea.....according to the AP Rodman got off the plane with his shirt open tats showing and had all his Piercings in.
    He is also looking to become a member of the Globetrotters now. According to what I hear he has been trying to clean up his act since he was inducted in the Hall of Fame. Don't know how true that is.

    But you can bet Kim Jong Il will be talking with him since the New Leader was a fan of Jordan.

    Don't ya just luv how the Hollywood Reporter dubbed this story! Rodman on Diplomacy Mission.

    That awkward moment when you see a headline, think that it's from The Onion, and it turns out to be a real story.

    And not at all the useful kind. At least Stalin got George Bernard Shaw and HG Wells. Communist propaganda fail.
