The London Times Online has a story this morning raising the same questions I did over a month ago.

“”This is no longer a question for discussion,” Dr Korpan said. “We are now sure that we can confirm which substance caused this illness. He received this substance from other people who had a specific aim.”

Asked if the aim had been to kill him, Dr Korpan said: “Yes, of course.” “

Now, you may recall I mentioned Dioxin as a likely suspect in this poisoning… and someone else in blgdom… and frankly, I’ve forgotten who, sorry… one of the big boys… JAmes Joyner, the Captain, someone like that…did a rather large write up on dioxin poisoning. This report mentions that as well, which I think an indication that we were not all that far off.

Of course in most countries, and even then under most conditions, such a charge of attempted assasination would be the end of the line for Yushchenko’s opponant, Yanukovych.

In this case either outcome wouldn’t shock me.

But more anyone stupid enough to try something like this would certainly also be desperate enough to attempt a simple ‘shoot ’em in the street’ action, as well.
