"My mission is to break the ice between hostile countries,” Rodman told the magazine. “Why it’s been left to me to smooth things over, I don’t know. Dennis Rodman, of all people. Keeping us safe is really not my job; it’s the black guy’s [Obama's] job. But I’ll tell you this: If I don’t finish in the top three for the next Nobel Peace Prize, something’s seriously wrong.”
Rodman noted that North Korea has deescalated its military posturing following his visit to the country with a documentary crew from HBO's "Vice" and members of the Harlem Globetrotters.
“Fact is, he hasn’t bombed anywhere he’s threatened to yet," Rodman said. "Not South Korea, not Hawaii, not ... whatever. People say he’s the worst guy in the world. All I know is Kim told me he doesn’t want to go to war with America."
