british experiment on marines

August 27, 2008

in 1964, the british marines conducted an experiment on their own soldiers, as they contemplated what would happen if they could incapacitate the enemy army with a hidden drug. that drug? LSD.

    It isn’t just the British that have experiment on there own troops with drugs…The US government have also. It doesn’t mean it isn’t wrong though, These poor guys and girls of the armed forces go through enough without adding to there troubles. Look how many US troops came back for Vietnam Hooked on heroine. None of it is acceptable and it isn’t a fun part of history. Lets hope this doesn’t happen again.

    there’s some things in history, that are pretty hard to believe they were really true..! ;~

    This is truly scary that they would experiment on their own soldiers for this purpose. Lord know what our government did to our troops.

    yeah how far the humans have come…-.- perhaps it is true that we only use about 10% (?) of our brain….😄

    Well in our defense…no wait…ok it was just damn hilarious

    Aah the Imperial War Museum there’s alot of this stuff in there hehe…

    I went to Paris on holiday a couple of weeks ago and we went to Isle de la Cite to the Holocaust museum…that is so depressing…especially as I’m Jewish. And there were a load of ‘Joseph Steinberg’ s which felt so weird as thats my brother’s name.

    Some Jews were deported when they were only babies but because they were too young to work they just killed them…isn’t that awful…

    But I recommend going,its really interesting. So next time you’re in Paris

    yeah and round the same time the australian government alowed the poms to test fricking nuclear bombs at maralinga in south australia while the indigenous population was either forcibly removed or left there as they tested the bombs….grrrr shit me off it does this too is morally wrong and causes long term damage to the individuals involved just like the drugs

  13. bec on August 27, 2008 at 3:04 pm

    that was great thinking: give the men hallucinogenic drugs and send them off into the woods with guns

    I wonder what would happen if they put Viagra in their drinking water??

    А насчет видео..да очень интересно использовать LSD на солдатах…такие солдаты ничего не боятся..то смеются)))

    It makes you wonder how many experiments have been conducted since – on both sides of the Altantic.

  22. Curiosa on August 27, 2008 at 11:33 am

    Had the soldiers taken LSD knowingly & willingly then this would have been hilarious but knowing that they had no idea they had taken the drug, I find it upsetting & morally wrong just like that youtube video of the teenagers forcing a small toddler to get high. That was not funny at all. What you do to yourself is your business but when you force someone else to, knowingly or unkowingly is completly wrong.

  23. Raspberry on August 27, 2008 at 11:19 am

    That is funny, in a twisted way .. i sat here thinking, damn! and i thought it was only the Americans who did wierd shit, ah well. I’m lucky, two postings today and it’s my 14 year wedding anniversary🙂

    Wow aint war wonderful mike, humans seem 2 love cmin up wit new n inventive ways 2 destroy ea other. I tink it woz mark twain who said “humananity has d ability 2 destroy d wrld 12 times over, i tink once is mre than enuf” o sumthin like dat n i agree. hw giftd we r n wot amazin initiatives we take wen tryin 2 discover ways 2 impose destruction n yet d world comunity drags it feet wen it cmes 2 tryin 2 heal d issues of humanity. its realy quiet sad…

    okay, so my media player is being a bitch and won’t play this vid properly, however i’m guessing, since you posted it mike, it must be somewhat funny…
    HOWEVER
    just by reading the title, using LSD as a weapon of choice? holy jesus isn’t that even a little bit morally wrong? and to test it on your own marines, not even the enemy marines? i dunno, i’m sure the clip is funny, but still, i can’t help but think maybe it’s a tad… wrong?
    cheers for the post Mike!

    My sister is listening to Meteora and I couldn’t hear the audio of the video._. People think this is funny…But I don’t agree at all, maybe because I don’t like drugs and war, and even less if they are together. Once I read that the Red Bull has a drug used in an American war (don’t ask me wich one, I don’t know anything about American History) in a small portion to make the blood go more liquid. Just crap.

  29. MentalisFun on August 27, 2008 at 10:59 am

    LOL Lucie…

    Those poor chaps…well….at least they got it for free, right?😛
    😀

  30. Lucie on August 27, 2008 at 10:53 am

  31. antje on August 27, 2008 at 10:30 am
