Advances in Weaponry Part II
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, June 13, 2007

This had to have been the result of some drunken discussion somewhere. The fact that it was actually taken seriously afterward has to make you feel a little better about the recent shakeup in the Pentagon:
What if it could release a chemical that would make an opposing army's soldiers think more about the physical attributes of their comrades in arms than the threat posed by the enemy? And thus the "gay bomb" was born. Far from being the product of conspiracy theorists, documents released to a biological weapons watchdog in Austin, Texas confirm that the US military did investigate the idea. It was included in a CD-Rom produced by the US military in 2000 and submitted to the National Academy of Sciences in 2002. The documents show that $7.5m was requested to develop the weapon.
Good grief.
Aaron Belkin, director of the University of California's Michael Palm Centre, which studies the issue of gays in the military, said: "The idea that you could submit someone to some aerosol spray and change their sexual behaviour is ludicrous."
Obviously a CIA inspired bomb (pun intended). As Scott Jacobs, who pointed this out to me said, "the bomb that dare not speak its name". Wonder what Saddam would have paid for that puppy.

I envision it being the Weapons R&B equivilent to "Beer Pong" or "I Never"...

The rapid banging sound you all heard at about noon central time was me slamming my head against my desk...

The smaller version of this weapon would be "Queer IED for the straight GI"

I fear they dropped the project because it sounds weird and perverse, not because it is any less feasible than many big ticket items they throw hundreds of billions of dollars at.

I’m sorry, Dale, but on a day when McQ posts about using swordfish as a weapon and a pheromone bomb intended to make the enemy attracted to the nearest human, I can’t help but come up with stuff like that.

I swear, you couldn’t write a comedy as funny as real life.

hmmm, I think they must have been worried about friendly fire with this weapon...

I mean, think of all the men who would have to be kicked out of the army...

Gives a whole new meaning to blue on blue...

This reminds me of the bomb plot to kill Indonesian strongman General Sukarno back in the ’60s. William F. Buckley Jr. quipped that it had all the earmarks of a CIA plot, since everyone in the room was killed except Sukarno.

If this is a self-guided munition, does it find it’s target via the ABSENSE of a gay-dar return?
