Today the president of Taiwan was shot during a pre-election day possession. The attempt failed by just injuring the President and the Vice President.
It is the day before the Taiwanese election, and the current president is at a very close race with the opposition party head. There are already rumors that the president may have arranged this himself to gain sympathy votes.
I guess anything is possible, given the Taiwanese parliament is the only government where fights often break out during parliament sessions.
What have the world come to, just for a political win?
