    That's great :D

    Bearing in mind it was 1994, what did they know back then... can you imagine if they'd gone through with it, who would they of tested it on ?

    There must be a million of better ideas to make a non-lethal weapon.

    Would it be a temporal effect? And why would this attract you to other men and not women?

    There are definitely some whackos in the Pentagon, of that I'm now convinced.

    Had they gone through with it I'm sure they would have effed it up and instead of killing they would be sodomizing the enemy.

    So the government know that being gay is hormonally based, not a choice?

    Doubt it would have helped. Actually, might have made things worse. Look at the ancient Greek and Roman armies.

    So much prejudice and idiotic thinking in one idea. The implications being made....

    1) People can be made to instantly change their sexuality
    2) Being gay means you're crap at fighting
    3) Gays can only ever think about sex
    4) Having gays in the Army means discipline breaks down

    As the last comment of the quoted section states, it's hilarious but also incredibly offensive. Anyone who seriously proposed something like this should have been committed.

    As far as non lethal weapons, why the hell haven't they come up with
    a simple sleeping compond that just knocks everyone out without hurting
    innocents?

    What the hell is next, a puppys and kittens bomb? It distracts the enemies with cute furry animals?

    Yeah right! What a load of bull.

    So gay men only think of sex?

    According to this theory, even when faced with a life threatening situation I'm going to be so atttracted to the guy attacking me that I'd sooner have sex with him? :mad:

    It really beggars belief…

    I hope the whole story is made up, because if it is true it shows a truly laughable level of "intelligence" in the Pentagon…

    A gay bomb??? You have got to be kidding me.

    Assuming this plan was ever real, I think I found out where these geniuses got their inspiration:

    That was the first thing I thought of too, but you beat me to it. I missed it by... that much!

    And if this bomb accidentally went off on a US Navy ship, how would you be able to tell? :cool:

    Not that there's any defense for this but the article did note

    Now if you're going to make the enemy too horny to fight having them attracted to other men in a majority male military would only help the situation. Of course this could backfire badly when young Lieutenant Hardbody wanders into the enemy encampment where the military used one of these.

    A powerful sleeping compound seems like it would be so much more effective and easier to come up with than this. Would you rather deal with an overly horny conscious enemy or a sleeping one?

    A non lethal sleeping or knockout agent would be perfect in situations where
    innocents are being used as human shields.

    This would also greatly improve our nation's image on the world stage
    showing that we respect human life above all.

    I'm on record as being in favor of dumping a Prozac the size of Texas in the water supply of everyone in the Middle East. Too much angry testosterone in that part of the world. :D

    I got that, but it was the implication the plan suggested that I was protesting. Almost like some moral majority idiot with his preconceived ideas about "damn homosexuals" had sat down one day and written down a list of his thoughts on how gay men behave, with the aphrodisiacs added to the plan later when someone points out that they need it to be foolproof.

    I hope obeygiant is right (yeah, not something I thought I'd ever type either :p) and it's all just made up nonsense.

    This from an American??!? :eek:

    This has already been a theme in a few gay porn films. Hmm...so much for Don't Ask Don't Tell. ;)

    Don't forget, when the President leaves the country, our level of angry testosterone drops considerably. :D

    This is thankfully true. Only 18 months to go and you can all finally chill out.

    Our own shyster goes in a couple of weeks too. I think a celebratory flypass by the RAF would be in order, that's if Blair hadn't spent the entire military budget on his megalomaniac missions ;)

    Would this bomb have the ability to transform fatigues into hot pants?

    And would it come with a disco ball and smoke machines? Maybe even a DJ (DJ Bomb?) to set the mood?
