US Pentagon Planned a Gay Bomb

When you think of the term “sex bomb,” you normally think of hotties like, Prince, Grace Jones, and well, KENYON FARROW! But the Pentagon gave new meaning to the term. These fools were apparently working on a series of non-lethal chemical warfare techniques a decade ago some of which, according to the BBC, included:

The plan for a so-called “love bomb” envisaged an aphrodisiac chemical that would provoke widespread homosexual behaviour among troops, causing what the military called a “distasteful but completely non-lethal” blow to morale.

Scientists also reportedly considered a “sting me/attack me” chemical weapon to attract swarms of enraged wasps or angry rats towards enemy troops.

A substance to make the skin unbearably sensitive to sunlight was also pondered.

Another idea was to develop a chemical causing “severe and lasting halitosis”, so that enemy forces would be obvious even when they tried to blend in with civilians.

In a variation on that idea, researchers pondered a “Who? Me?” bomb, which would simulate flatulence in enemy ranks.

Are you kidding me? I guess it’s better than bombs and bullets. But I can’t say I want any kind of “weapons”, no matter how funny sounding, to be used to dominate other people for US policy purposes. Chile please!

 NOTE: Since I have been accused if dredging up two-year old news, I wanted to point out that the story surfaced again this week because of this television news story out of Berkelely, CA. I linked to the BBC story b/c it contained some other interesting pieces of the story. Thanks, Sherman!

  1. I’m surprised the BBC is just reporting on this news…the Washington Post had an article about this potential WME (Weapon of Mass [Homo]-Eroticism) a few years ago.

  2. Naw, the BBC reported on it back in January of 2005, but I just found out about it, too. It’s all good.
