Pentagon had plans for a gay bomb

I’m noticing the WTF? category often coincides with the Stupid category on the blahg. Well, in instances like this, I think that is a reasonably accurate way to categorize the information that follows.

A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.

Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsquently rejected, building the so-called “Gay Bomb.”

OK, so they considered and then rejected the idea. But really, the way to make men more interested in sex than in fighting is to, well, suggest they have sex instead of fight. Provided there are enough willing women to put out for the men, that’s the end of the necessary weapons and attack planning.

See, I should be a military planner – I totally understand men’s sexual desires more than the current planners.
