I still think it wouldn't hurt for our government to think outside the box.

Could it be possible that this might have been an opportunity for the U. S. to invite Kim Jung Un to visit, enjoy some basketball, and perhaps learn that Americans aren't the evil people he thinks we are? Heck, he could even take in a game or two with Obama.

I've read many articles that simply say NO to the idea, but none that explain WHY.

What's wrong with thinking outside the usual box?

Could this possibly be an opportunity to show Kim Jong Un that Americans are not really the evil people he thinks we are?

What might happen if he came to America, enjoyed some basketball, maybe even a game of HORSE with Obama, and returned to Korea as a friend?

Is that such a far-out idea?

Yeah, it's pretty far fetched. However, I think it would be really funny to see that little guy running around a basketball court with Obama. One can only hope. Maybe Saturday Night Live.

P.S. Kim Jong Un knows we are not "evil". He just needs to keep telling his people that we are so that he can keep them in control and won't want to throw the Communist system out or defect so they can enjoy some of the good life of the West.

Yes, m.g., politicians of all kinds seem to have a need for "evil" people so they can scare people into voting for them.

It's a shame, isn't it?

Kerry demeaned himself by acknowledging Rodman's visit to N. Korea.

Apparently Kerry is also 'no diplomat'........
