U.S. plans to drop ‘gay bombs’ on enemies, Turkish columnist says

A columnist for a Turkish pro-government newspaper said the United States planned to drop bombs on its enemies that change their targets’ sexual preferences.

“When the United States is an enemy of a country and plans to go to war, it plans either to drop a bomb that will change the sexual preferences of that country’s population or one that will kill them all,” wrote Mehmet Barlas in his Monday column for the high-circulation Sabah newspaper.

The original “gay bomb” had been planned as an alternative to the atomic bombs dropped on the Japanese cities of Nagasaki and Hiroshima during World War Two, Barlas explained, quoting documents he said had been recently declassified.

The Sabah columnist went on to speculate that the United States aims to use similar chemical weapons to sterilise large numbers of people in order to prevent overpopulation. Some of these chemicals could be transmitted through vaccines, said Barlas.

The 2003 Iraq War and the instability caused by the Arab Spring uprisings are more instances of “Deep America” and its attempts to control the world population, he added.

Turkish-U.S. relations have been under sustained tension over a series of disputes, including the detention in Turkey of U.S. citizens and employees including Andrew Brunson, a pastor held since Oct. 2016 on terror charges.

The United States imposed sanctions and metal tariff hikes on Turkey in response to the detentions, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has blamed the lira’s subsequent nosedive on what he calls an economic war.
