    Pentagon reveals rejected chemical weapons
    15 January 2005
    From New Scientist Print Edition.

    THE Pentagon considered developing a host of non-lethal chemical weapons that would disrupt discipline and morale among enemy troops, newly declassified documents reveal.

    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.

    Other ideas included chemical weapons that attract swarms of enraged wasps or angry rats to troop positions, making them uninhabitable. Another was to develop a chemical that caused "severe and lasting halitosis", making it easy to identify guerrillas trying to blend in with civilians. There was also the idea of making troops' skin unbearably sensitive to sunlight.

    The proposals, from the US Air Force Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, date from 1994. The lab sought Pentagon funding for research into what it called "harassing, annoying and 'bad guy'-identifying chemicals". The plans have been posted online by the Sunshine Project, an organisation that exposes research into chemical and biological weapons.

    Come to think of it, the Pentagon's rejection of these chemicals can be deemed a wise one; as the world's enemies nowadays mingle amongst us, virtually indistinguishable as regard to color, creed, or political beliefs. Those weapons would have been rendered inutile.

    Terrorism has introduced a new shift in playing the art of war. No longer is it a 'Them vs. Us' scenario like in previous wars. In a way, it has now instead become a very intense battle of spies. ;P
