I was reading the Iranian and saw this bizarre article about Pentagon's proposed research to develop an "aphrodisiac" chemical weapon that would provoke "homosexual behaviour among troops"! (enemy's that is!) I thought it was a joke and followed the link to the New Scientist article about this. Still not trusting my eyes, I searched the Sunshine Project, an organisation that exposes this kind of research. There I found the 1992 document about "Harassing, Annoying, and 'Bad Guy' Identifying Chemicals."
The top of page 2 in the pdf format (category # 3) made me laugh. I am still not sure about the accuracy of these documents, but if this is for real, whoever came up with this plan must be on crack! This is based on the bigotry that discharges gays and lesbians from military. Not that I am in favor of gays and lesbians being in the military in the first place... But my reason is mainly because I oppose the military industry all together, and not because I think that "homosexual behavior" will make the military "weak!" And to use "homosexual behavior" as a weapon? Give me a break! I guess this is much better than nuclear weapons on which the Pentagon is probably working. Maybe they came across a sticker on a car that said "make love not war!" and thought, "let's kill them faggots while they're making love!" Who knows... I am still thinking this is a joke, but if it's not... If it is not, bring it on! [p.s I meant the aphrodisiacs!!]
Seriuosly speaking, Pentagon's investigation of the Abu Gharib abuses of Iraqi prisoners resulted in the conviction of Charles Graner...
The word of the day, dear farangopolitans, which I've decided to add to my dictionary is: Pentagonexoneration!!
Have a peaceful weekend, my friends.
