    File this under oh my god, what will they waste our money on next, it also shows a basic misunderstanding of homosexuality.. with this train of thought the Russians should develop a hyperheterosexuality spray and unleash it on one of our aircraft carriers.. then huge orgies would develop and we would be vulnerable.

    CBS 5) BERKELEY 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."

    Edward Hammond, of Berkeley's Sunshine Project, had used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain a copy of the proposal from the Air Force's Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio.

    As part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons, the proposal suggested, "One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior."

    The documents show the Air Force lab asked for $7.5 million to develop such a chemical weapon.

    "The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another," Hammond said after reviwing the documents.

    First people get upset if we kill people then, evidently, they get upset if we find alternate ways to win without killing people.

    Well, it could certainly give a new meaning to the phrase "friendly fire."

    I'm no expert on the subject, but the little I've read about aphrodisiacs is that they're almost complete nonsense. Spending $7.5 million on this is sort of things sounds like a waste of money.

    So you get furious when your tax dollars are spent on Head Start or job retraining; but the attempted development of a gay bomb is a perfectly sensible thing to spend taxes on?

    How about not killing people and not working on a "gay bomb". Is there anything the military can do to piss you off?

    It's part of a military budget. The Mil decides how they want to spend the cash awarded to them. Consider what their budget was in 1994, and what $7.5 million over 6 years actually amounts to.

    Its a gay bomb.

    This is real life money we're talking about here, not the plot to an Austin Powers movie.
