Rejected chemical weapon ideas

A few years back, our military tossed around ideas for new non-lethal chemical weapons:

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.

The brainstorming sessions apparently went no further, and the ideas were rejected. Makes you wonder what they’re dreaming about today, doesn’t it?

    OMG! This would be a great weapon. Can you imagine what would happen if it were unleashed in DC. So much the gay marriage act.
    Would that qualify as a WSO? Weapon of Sexual Orientation?
