That`s just sad...

"Well, turning people into chickens didn`t work like Rachet and Clank. Hmmm... How about a bomb that would turn everyone into homosexuals?"
"But how will that stop people with fighting with eachother?"
"It`s obvious! They would love eachother AND they won`t have any kids so their kids can`t hate either!"
"YEAH! RIGHT!"

"bad guy`-identifying chemicals" - i can hear Bush saying that. I bet he wakes up in the middle of the night to write all these ideas down:
Bush: " hey i got another one Laura!"

Laura: " whos a clever boy then!? you`ll exaust yourself, go sleepies now" *under breath* "prick"

"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."

(negated in the event of a war with france).

Still, wouldn`t there be other, better applications for a strong aphrodisiac like this? It would sure lower alcohol consumption (see a previous, much discussed post) as a "proud sponsor of casual sex".

Seriously. it doesnt make you gay. its a reall strong aphrodisiac....in other words it makes you extrememyl horny. the reason they wont be able to fight is because they are gonna wanna have sex with everyone they see guy or girl. if you read the article you would realize this.

Diglem: First of all, how is being gay suppoesed to stop you shooting someone?


Hmmmm, maybe you should actually READ the article B-|.

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

^^^That would be me moving the third paragraph to this forum because you like posting things you don`t even try to answer yourself :-P.

I think it`s a great idea, even if it does sound distasteful. The post I like the most in this forum:

Teiso: "also I wonder what makes them think homosexuals make worse fighters? hoooorahhh for arrogant people."

I don`t think it`s that gay people make worse fighters, I think it`d be more that now they are having to deal with strange new feelings that are disturbing and confusing to them. I mean, what if your orientation suddenly changed? You`d be distracted, wouldn`t you? Even if it was gay to straight, you`d still be distracted and confused.

I see two major problems concening this idea.

First of all, how is being gay suppoesed to stop you shooting someone?

And secound. Even if this stopped somone killing (Very unlikely) , the agent would be gasous right? Arn`t gasous weapons highly unpredicatable? I seem to remember chlorine gas being this way...

Lol! A `Who? me?` bomb is the dumbest there. Surely they would figure out it was a bomb and not one the soldiers.

This is actually being mis-reported. The real deal is that 1 military researcher proposed this as an idea and wanted funding for the project.

The US military did not take the guy up on his idea and did not give him any funding for such a project. So no money was "wasted".

People in military research propose ideas all the time, its part of thier job. It doesn`t mean that any of it ever actually gets worked on.

This is another example of "journalism" at its finest. This is such a non-story you have to wonder at the agenda of those who published it. >-(

As a homosexual...
Well actually, I have nothing to say about that.
I don`t think it so much as makes everyone gay, it`s more like an EXTREMELY strong aphrodesiac, so if there were women on the field, yo0u`d bang them too. SO, virtuallu, a straight bomb would do the exact same thing.

And all you homophobes need to grow the hell up. BEcause most of you are probably just hiding your own latent homosexual tendencies. Or perhaps you got a little too comfortabole with your uncle when you were 5, nonetheless, aim it towards him, not us.

Mogulman - say WHAT? draters.

If they released this, or did the opposite on the nation to rid of homosexuals, I seriously would kill people. I`d drating murder people if the government did that to me. I`d trash public property and murder. I`m not a vio9lent person, but that`d be drating wrong. No drating way. Government drat off. Keep the drat away from me.

If this product exists that make people sexually attracted to each other, then why don`t they put it on the market??! No more expensive divorces! No more (or much less) impotence! Nerds can have sex for all eternity!

I don`t really get it? I mean, I guess they`d be distracted for a bit while they were getting freaky with each other, but then they`d probably just go back to shooting us again. It would buy time, but that`s all.

"...they were never pursued."
That line right there kind of kills the whole premise of this post. The US never tried to develop anything like that. The plans were shot down. You`re talking about one crackpot think tank who thought it would be a good idea. Not the entire fraking military.

I think "gay-bomb" is a misnomer. Heard somewhere that the idea is, it`ll just make everyone there so sexially attracted to one another, that they can no longer concentrate. Lot nicer than killing them, so..

stevencash, they didn`t pursue any of these ideas, did they? Possibly because they decided it was too cruel. But there`s nothing wrong with trying to come up with creative ways of fighting the enemy, even if they are never used.

embarassing others?that`s non-lethal...however a blow to your morale and self belief is worse than death....those people would live a shamful and hard life...like not being able to face community as they have bad odors...(no offence to queers but how would queers like to be turn straight?of course not)....I would rather die than do immoral things....well guess they live in immoral world so immoral stuff like that doesn`t matter to them..

Instead of stopping the war, let`s just turn the enemies gay so we can identify them! But what about gay Americans? Our soldiers will think gay Americans are working for the enemy! Unless... we come up with a heterosexual bomb! Lets bomb all Americans and turn them straight! :-P

They didn`t actually spend any money researching this if you read the wording correctly.

I think it would backfire... I can just picture enemy soldiers running around like the dudes in 28 Days Later except they try and rape you. Yea, getting raped by another guy would go along great for our morale.
