(Reader Supported News) -- So Dennis Rodman has returned from yet another visit to North Korea and President Kim Jong-Un. Rodman is predictably under fire from mainstream media for entertaining a dictator, for treason (via former boxer Mike Tyson’s assertion), and for generally sticking his pierced nose where it could not possibly belong.
Well, Kudos to Dennis Rodman for doing what the American government has cynically refused to do since North Korea transgressed by attempting to drive US, Russian, and Japanese forces from all of Korea following World War II.
Rodman spoke to the North Koreans and reached out. Proving that it could always have been done and still can by any US official bold enough to buck the American War Industry.

We needed to know that while Rodman was there hobnobbing with Kim, Kim took time out to summarily execute his uncle, whom he accused of corruption, but probably did not feed to hungry dogs, but probably did dispatch by firing squad within 72 hours of arrest. None of which changes the historical record. Korea is a land long dominated by foreign armies. The sense of rage there, in North and South, is little understood by Westerners.
