Glad to know there’s no idea so stupid that the Pentagon can’t drop some money on it: (and this is even right by my out alma mater)
The Pentagon considered developing a host of non-lethal chemical weapons that would disrupt discipline and morale among enemy troops, newly declassified documents reveal. Most bizarre among the plans was one for the development of an “aphrodisiac” chemical weapon that would make enemy soldiers sexually irresistible to each other. Provoking widespread homosexual behaviour among troops would cause a “distasteful but completely non-lethal” blow to morale, the proposal says.
Because you can totally change the gender someone is attracted to by simply making them ultra-horny.
What I always hate is they don’t publish the declassified documents so this could have been just one bullet point among thousands of pages. I don’t know how to best gauge my derision.
