Up for Debate: A trip to North Korea

What do you make of Dennis Rodman's trip to North Korea with the Harlem Globetrotters and a media outlet? Are any interactions good interactions?

Raspy old boy you don't have the brains or the money to be proud. Your post shows a pitiful example of low breed city scum, trying to be something you are not.

Sorry, way late to this party.
Rodman was a Detroit Piston if I recall.
He had more rebounds, if I recall.
That's it.
Now, he's a diplomatic agent working for the US Embassy?
And I'm an astronaut.

I left a rant on this board @ 8:37 re: Graham-Menendez....the joint resolution that's quickly gathering sponsors...timed to suck-up to the AIPAC convention now taking center stage in Washington, DC.

The AIPAC-composed resolution expresses the will of the US Congress, but it's not binding upon the POTUS; it does give the state of Israel the green light to attack Iran, with the assurance of US military support...to join in the ensuing fray....no matter what. Israel's PM, not the POTUS will decide on when to attack....this surrenders US sovereignty to a state outside our union of states....it's sickening.

Depressing as surrender of US sovereignty to a Jewish theocracy in Palestine is, this article in the New York Times is equally sickening:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/05/us/politics/biden-tells-pro-israel-group-that-president-is-not-bluffing-on-iran.html?_r=0

Snippet:

" In his last appearance before the group, soon after he took office in 2009, Mr. Biden warned that “you’re not going to like this,” before declaring that the Obama administration wanted Israel to stop building settlements in the West Bank, as a way to jump-start peace talks with the Palestinians."

"This time, Mr. Biden did not mention settlements, and he said little about the peace process, which has been paralyzed for most of Mr. Obama’s presidency despite his early efforts to play peacemaker. Administration officials have played down expectations that Mr. Obama will bring bold new proposals to revive the talks when he visits Jerusalem later this month."

Here's a link with a video of Graham introducing his resolution, while Menendez looks on...Graham's words are simply Canned Canards, Produce of Israel, Export Grade:

Here we go again....the old nuclear boogie man.....when Israel and the US are the real nuclear boogie men in the region...the War Super Lobby is picking up the volume....Defense, Israel, Energy....DIE....is in control....and the red line, the deadline for attacking Iran is approaching....DIE has an agenda....a schedule to maintain, deficits be damned....more Holy War is forthcoming.

Graham, Menendez & those who sign this pledge are paying back their financial backers with this "we got your back", tough talk. But it will be the backs, arms, legs and heads of young Americans on the line, when Israel feels threatened enough to preemptively attack Iran....in "self defense".

If Graham-Menendez is the template for a future casus belli that drags the US into a war with Iran, Bibi Netanyahu, not Barack Obama, will be US Commander-In-Chief ....the Knesset, not the US Congress will call the shots.

They claimed that Chuck Hagel exaggerated the extent of Israeli influence on US politics.....truly, he understated it.

Hugo Chavez decided to go ahead and die rather than take the chance of being the next to get a visit from this buffoon Denis Rodman.
