Yushchenko Poisoned

By GotDesign
Someone has been trying to kill Ukrainian opposition leader and Presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko. The Times of London reports (HT: Drudge) that Yushchenko was treated in Australia for poisoning which, while not killing the presidential candidate, left him with visible signs of the attempt -- facial scarring and disfiguration (see photo below).

You'd think that this would be a story out of history and not today's headlines. I've not seen such barbarism since Pol Pot. And you thought the U.S. elections were nasty!
