PLANNED U.S. AIR FORCE WEAPON WOULD HAVE MADE THE ENEMY WANT TO HUMP EACH OTHER

FITSNews – June 14, 2007 – We’ve been dying to write about this story for the past two days, but were a little gun-shy given all the flak we took the last time we wrote about bombs. Of course then we remembered that the only thing to fear is fear itself. Anyway, according to information obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests, the U.S. Air Force has now confirmed that in 1994 one of its researchers suggested spending $7.5 million to develop a “love bomb” that would make the enemy want to hump each other instead of fight. From the story:

As part of the military’s goal of developing 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.”

You know, we just don’t think the “love bomb” would have been enough all by itself. Personally, we would have added another $7.5 million to purchase thousands of boomboxes blasting Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” and dropped them on the enemy as well. Because let’s face it, people, that song makes everybody want to hump.
