Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'

Hank Plante
Reporting

(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.

"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.

The Pentagon told CBS 5 that the proposal was made by the Air Force in 1994.

"The Department of Defense is committed to identifying, researching and developing non-lethal weapons that will support our men and women in uniform," said a DOD spokesperson, who indicated that the "gay bomb" idea was quickly dismissed.

However, Hammond said the government records he obtained suggest the military gave the plan much stronger consideration than it has acknowledged.

"The truth of the matter is it would have never come to my attention if it was dismissed at the time it was proposed," he said. "In fact, the Pentagon has used it repeatedly and subsequently in an effort to promote non-lethal weapons, and in fact they submitted it to the highest scientific review body in the country for them to consider."

Military officials insisted Friday to CBS 5 that they are not currently working on any such idea and that the past plan was abandoned.

Gay community leaders in California said Friday that they found the notion of a "gay bomb" both offensive and almost laughable at the same time.

"Throughout history we have had so many brave men and women who are gay and lesbian serving the military with distinction," said Geoff Kors of Equality California. "So, it's just offensive that they think by turning people gay that the other military would be incapable of doing their job. And its absurd because there's so much medical data that shows that sexual orientation is immutable and cannot be changed."

Why don't the Pentagon folks just develop a "bomb" that makes everyone more interested in peace than in war?

Then drop some on everyone -- themselves included.

I've had a lot of luck with this:


Negroni Cocktail

- 5 ounces dry gin
- 5 ounces campari
- 5 ounces sweet vermouth
- Orange twists

In a cocktail shaker, combine gin, campari, and vermouth. Shake gently. Pour over ice into a large chilled cocktail glass. Twist the orange peel to release the juices and add to the drink.

I guess the government endorses the scientific findings that "homosexuality" is not a choice but rather a genetic trait. You'd think they'd drop a "straight" bomb on all the folks failing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Your tax dollars at work.

The bomb itself would not be a "gay" bomb.

For one, it would not dress fashionably or have any clue about social interaction, but that is another topic entirely.


The thing is, the idgits, looking for something easy to remember it, called it this.

My bet is that they were looking for a F-Bomb. Something that would make the soldiers so randy that they would jump just about anything that was breathing. Would that be disruptive? Definitely. Would they be more "attracted" in more than a sense to get their rocks off? Doubtful.

Homosexuality SEEMS to be an ingrained trait that is either enforced or deterred by environment. Simply spraying someone with Channel #69 will not make someone spend more time in the Meat Packing district.

I am sorry, I meant to say Chelsea. Why would I say Meat Packing? :confused:

Homokaasu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homokaasu) ...

(Finnish name, literally gay-gas) is a fictitious poisonous chemical substance, that is supposedly an odorless and invisible gas at room temperature. It is a Finnish urban legend, and is often the subject of running gags on Finnish Usenet newsgroups.

Conspiracy theory

Homokaasu is supposedly used on specific people by secret agents of the Roman Catholic Church to gain a subliminal control of the victims ...

The bomb that dare not speak its name

The Sunshine Project (http://www.sunshine-project.org/)is an activist group that studies the US government's research into chemical and biological weapons. They file lots of Freedom of Information requests, and one of their latest ones discovered something quite hilarious. Apparently, in 1994, the military considered a proposal to research a "gay bomb" that would make enemy soldiers "sexually irresistible" to each other. As the BBC notes: (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/4174519.stm)

The plan for a so-called "love bomb" envisaged an aphrodisiac chemical that would provoke widespread homosexual behaviour among troops, causing what the military called a "distasteful but completely non-lethal" blow to morale.The military claims this proposal was immediately rejected, but the Sunshine Project says that it was still being pondered as late as 2001. (http://www.sunshine-project.org/publications/pr/pr170105.html)I can't figure out who to believe. On the one hand, the idea is so laughable it would seem impossible anyone would take it seriously; then again, the military is so massively deranged about homosexuality that I can almost believe it.

If there was a chance that a chemical could be developed in order to provoke sexual reactions from unwilling people the pharmeceuticals would have been all over it by now.

I seriously hope that this was nothing more than a drunken proposition at a think tank session.

Not surprisingly, Fox chose to make "love" between gay people the offense as opposed to the idea of the bomb itself. The quoted phrase "love bomb" is included twice, but no source for that phrase is reported. I guess they were quoting Morton Kondracke, BIll O'Reilly or Brit Hume.

Air Force Considered Gay 'Love Bomb' Against Enemies

Tuesday , June 12, 2007

WASHINGTON —
The Air Force on Tuesday confirmed a report that in 1994 a military researcher requested $7.5 million to develop a non-lethal "love bomb" that would chemically alter the state of mind of enemy troops and make them want to have sex with each other rather than fight.

Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Col. Cathy Reardon said the idea was proposed by an Air Force researcher at a lab at Brooks Air Force Base in Texas, but it was rejected by the Defense Department. Officials noted that the Air Force constantly is considering funding proposals.

No money was spent, Reardon said, and no such weapons are being considered. The goal was to create a non-lethal weapon to be used against enemy troops.

First reported by KPIX-TV in San Francisco, the discovery of the "gay bomb" proposal came from a Freedom of Information Act request made by Edward Hammond of Berkeley's Sunshine Project, a watchdog group that tracks military spending.

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."

The proposal also offered other ideas, such as a "sex attractant" chemical that would make "annoying and injurious creatures" like stinging bugs more aggressive and draw them to the enemy's position. Another chemical would leave such a strong stench, the enemy would be detectable for weeks.

A portion of the proposal notes that some of the chemicals could be used on both enemy personnel and civilians and would require decontamination countermeasures to nullify the effects.

A Defense Department spokesman told FOX News that he was not aware of any "love bomb" proposal but called the idea one of the most ridiculous things he'd heard.

FOX News' Jennifer Griffin and Nick Simeone contributed to this report.

The comic varies, kind of out in left field (but some are very nicely drawn. Take a look for yourself... http://www.threepanelsoul.com/

The guy there is supposed to be from the game "City of Villans" where you make characters and do crimes. His name is the "Homosexual Agenda". Therefore making a "Gay bomb" that would cause trouble is right up his.....um.....alley.

Porn company drops gay bomb


When they’re not busy wiping their asses with the Constitution, they’re showing total contempt for basic scientific knowledge ...

5 July, 2007

Following last month’s news that the Pentagon had devised a ‘gay bomb’ (http://uk.gay.com/headlines/11697), Gay porn company Dark Alley has jumped at the opportunity to make a film inspired by pseudo science-fiction, inherently homophobic military maneuver.

In a move to “kick the US Government while it’s down,” Dark Alley described the upcoming “Gay bomb”, to begin filming in November 2007, as follows:

“Gay Bomb will take us into the future and the year 2012. George the Second has refused to step down as leader of the “free world,” and the nations of Europe have banded together to fight the new American military dictatorship.”

“Desperate to fend off its attackers, the US launches the experimental ‘gay bomb,’ designed to make the enemy forces drop their guns and turn fag. But the winds of fate blow in a different direction, and soon America is brought to its knees.”

In June it was revealed that US Air Force had investigated building a "gay bomb", a hormone bomb that was aimed to turn heterosexuals into homosexuals. Government papers suggested that this type of weapon would make enemy soldiers "sexually irresistible" to each other.

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

The 1994 plans were projected over six years and would have cost $7.5m. The plans were eventually turned down.

Gay community leaders in California said that they found the idea of a "gay bomb" both offensive and ridiculous.

Commenting on their upcoming feature, Dark Alley’s Matthias von Fistenberg insisted, “We’re really not making this up. In fact, if the Pentagon officials want to see the outcome of this project, they should tune into Dark Alley TV on December 1.”

Dark Alley producer Owen Hawk concurred: “This was too good an opportunity to pass up. When they’re not busy wiping their asses with the Constitution, they’re showing total contempt for basic scientific knowledge and spending tax dollars to turn armies gay. We should laugh at their expense every chance we get.”

Dark Alley is also responsible for the porn political parody Gaytanamo.
