considered developing a host of non-lethal chemical weapons that would disrupt discipline and morale among enemy troops, newly declassified documents reveal.
Okay. I'm sure after my last post and now this one ExpLing readers are wondering what channel I'm surfing today. The thought of an aphrodisiac WMD was just too much to pass up though. Just think, if this kind of thing is possible, surely it is not inconceivable that a non-lethal WMD might do something even worse...like cause a reversal of front and back vowels. So, if an enemy commander ordered his troops to "shoot at coordinate X!" and then their vowels were reversed... It could render a present day babel scenario among the enemies. Okay, I'll stop now.

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. Another was to develop a chemical that caused "severe and lasting halitosis", making it easy to identify guerrillas trying to blend in with civilians.
