Yes it is a disgrace. Israel got caught with its pants down and did not have the assets to conquer south lebanon before a cease fire. Saying this, I see two options: 1. Kill Meshaal or Nasrallah in Syria and provoke intervention from Iran and Syria. This will allow Israel to go into S Lebanon without impunity. 2. Allow a cease fire using the following conditions. a. Hezbollah integrate the militia into the Lebanese army. b. Israel and Lebanon exchange prisoners c. Israel returns the Sheba farms to Syria d. Serious negotiations start on a permanent peace treaty between Israel, Lebanon and Syria.
