Were I reviewing the video, I might have called it a modern day, WorldStarHipHop remake of Woody Allen's Bananas.

I think trying to bring together nations through sport is honorable. I know Rodman is an idiot, and doesn't know he's a propaganda tool used by North Korea.

I like recommending one of my favorite documentary films, Nat Geo: Inside North Korea. (it's on Netflix)

This will give you a great glimpse of what goes on inside that country, and Lisa Ling is easy on the eyes as well.

I don't know who was more desperate, Rodman for wanting the attention or CNN for allowing it to continue.

Re second clip. look at those people in the audience, they look like zombies. And I wonder how many of Rodman's teamates regret this trip now.

I noticed that Rodman calls him Kim as well. I wonder if people know that Kim is his family name. In many countries the family name is said first. His name is actually Jung-Un. Could barely hear him, but I don't think he's got the voice of an angel.

I can't take a vacation to Cuba, but this clown is allowed to be BFFs with one of the world's most ruthless dictators.

I think we embargoed the wrong country.

Amen, I think it had to do with how close Cuba is to the USA. You are 100% right though. No place on earth does human rights like North Korea.

The way we (USA) have treated Cuba for the last 40 years was a mistake. Should have enundated them with our commercialization and culture.

Pretty much.

If you watch any professinal or amauter documentary about trips to North Korea.

You will very quickly realize that North Korea, collectively is out of its god damned mind.

You want cane-sugar Coke? Go to Mexico.

I doubt we even have it in the GWN, given how far down in the back-pocket of America as we are.

Is that a whine??

Are you sure you're a Canadian? We don't do 'that'.

Nor do we go somewhere that we don't enjoy. And plenty of Canadians enjoy going to Cuba.

Cuba is great, but most people agree that the food just doesn't taste right

I imagine it's somewhat like stepping back in time. Of course when the U.S. finally opens the doors to corporations, then that will evaporate, I imagine.

Yep, the corn lobby will make sure the embargo stays in place, the massive flood of cane sugar from Cuba would seriously jeopardize the makers of HFCS ( Huge Fatty Crap Syrup )

After seeing this, I sure hope Dennis Rodman is using it as a disguise and we find out that he was working for the CIA 20 years from now. Otherwise, he is truly bat **** crazy.
