Ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman on peace mission to North Korea ( Alrighty then....)



The flamboyant former NBA star Dennis Rodman is heading to North Korea , to become an unlikely ambassador for sports diplomacy at a time of heightened tensions between the US and North Korea.

Rodman, three members of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team, and a film crew from the Vice media company are visiting the communist country to shoot footage for a TV show set to air on HBO in early April, Vice told the Associated Press before the group's departure from Beijing.

It's the second high-profile US visit this year to North Korea, a country with which it technically remains at war following the Korean war. The visit comes two weeks after North Korea conducted an underground nuclear test in defiance of UN bans against atomic and missile activity.

Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, met officials and toured computer labs in Pyongyand during a surprise four-day trip in January, just weeks after North Korea launched a satellite into space on the back of a long-range rocket.

2. Nothing.

I can imagine what they will think when they see him. If they think we all dress and look like that, it might scare them into behaving.
