US Military Pondered Creation Of "Gay Bomb;" Beaten To The Punch By "George Micheal"

From the BBC:

The US military investigated building a "gay bomb", which would make enemy soldiers "sexually irresistible" to each other, government papers say....

...The US defence department considered various non-lethal chemicals meant to disrupt enemy discipline and morale.

The 1994 plans were for a six-year project costing $7.5m, but they were never pursued...

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....

Wow. I love the idea of our nation commanding armies of angry rats and wasps. "Come to me, jungle friends! Pour your limitless rage upon mine enemies!"

The original article has all sorts of other terrific, rejected ideas. Go read about about our speculative efforts at mass-induced halitosis and admire the imagination of America.
