Rodman Posts Up in North Korea?!
“Is sending the Harlem Globetrotters and Dennis Rodman to the DPRK strange? In a word, yes,” said Smith, who is host of the upcoming series. “But finding common ground on the basketball court is a beautiful thing.” – nypost

Dennis Rodman AKA “The Worm” posted up in North Korea with three players from the Harlem Globetrotter’s on Tuesday! Rodman is attempting to be an advocate to “diplomacy” through the means of “basketball!” Rodman (and the Trotters) are working with Vice Media and founder Shane Smith to produce an upcoming weekly (docu) series to premiere on HBO in early April titled “VICE Guide to North Korea.” True the dress code is drab, and Rodman is often draped up in skirts just the opposite, but the young leader Kim Yong Jun is actually a true and blue 1990’s Bulls fan!

North Korea is actually in a state of war with America after they conducted an underground nuclear test in defiance of U.N. bans against atomic and missile activity a couple of weeks ago. North Korea also shot off a satellite and rocket launch in mid-December without approval from the U.N. Washington, Tokyo, Seoul and others consider both actions a threat to national security. Rodman, 51, is the second American to visit the new “Public Enemy No. 1”; Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, made a surprise four-day trip to Pyongyang (computer labs) just weeks after the rocket launch. Hopefully, the US and North Korea can make peace again.
