but camo is SO out this year!

ran across this while perusing the online version of the fortean times:

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."

[...] "The notion was that a chemical that would probably be pleasant in the human body in low quantities could be identified, and by virtue of either breathing or having their skin exposed to this chemical, the notion was that soliders would become gay," explained Hammond.

...

we have got some SERIOUS FUCKING PROBLEMS with this stupid asshole country.

Oh boy. The really funny part comes when you consider our military must have been forced to think about countermeasures. "What do we do when they drop the hormone bomb on OUR boys?"

I wonder what the contingency plan was. "Hetero hormones," carried around by all the medics? Airlifting porn and hookers? The Playboy bunnies from Apocalypse Now? I'm sure we had a plan.

Your tax dollars at work.
