The Pentagon's Gay BombBrilliant
As part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons, the proposal suggested, "One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior."
The documents show the Air Force lab asked for $7.5 million to develop such a chemical weapon.
"The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another," Hammond said after reviwing the documents.
Let's remember that the Pentagon did not approve funding for this "weapon"; it was just a proposal like lots of other proposals. I would certainly say that the Pentagon should consider all possible weapons; in the winnowing process most of the kooky ideas (like this one) will end up on the floor.
