This is what happens in Wars of Attrition: the cost of the war footing cannibalizes all other needs in a society until it collapses from within. Stay tuned. http://news.yahoo.com/wheelchair-bound-israeli-veteran-sets-himself-fire-113943585--business.html JERUSALEM (Reuters) - A wheelchair-bound Israeli war veteran set himself alight at a bus stop on Sunday, sustaining serious burns, two days after a protester died of injuries from a similar incident. Police and medics said the man was in his 50s and that passers-by put out the flames that engulfed him on a road near Tel Aviv. He suffered burns over 80 percent of his body. "His story is a difficult one, his emotional and economic situations weren't easy," said Dudi Gilboa, a member of an Israeli disabled veterans group who knows the man. Gilboa told Israel Radio he and the wheelchair-bound veteran had been embroiled in a dispute with authorities in charge of rehabilitating and helping wounded veterans. "We have mourned our friends in battle, we don't want to lose them like this," Gilboa said, echoing the concerns of many in Israel that the July 14 self-immolation of Moshe Silman, at a march against rising housing and food prices, might be copied. Silman, 57, died of his injuries on Friday and his plight stirred deep emotions in Israel.
