Blow my Morale!

New Scientist has an article about the Pentagon's rejected plans for non-lethal chemical weapons. Best nugget of crizazy:
"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."

Um. Is this not the most offensive thing EVER? I know the Pentagon is all about "Don't ask / don't tell" but to state that widespread gayness would cause a blow to morale? As in, morale would be sucked off?

Oh man, if we could just end war by blowing morale, how sweet would that be?

Anyhoo. I think droppin' the gay bomb is the greatest kind of attack anyway. Many episodes of Grindhouse used to feature moments in which Jonny McGovern turned all of us gay, and we all ended up making out instead of fighting. We were lovers, not fighters! And it was lovely. And there were no enraged wasps or angry rats.
