    Howdy Omar; With 116 Israeli soldiers KIA versus over 530 Hezbollah fighters KIA, hundreds of sq. Km. of southern Lebanon seized by the IDF versus the failure of Hezbollah to seize a single sq. cm. of Israel or of the Shebaa Farms, over $4 billion in damage to Lebanese infrastructure versus less than $0.5 billion in damage to Israeli infrastructure, and the fact that Hezbollah has lost its absolute control over southern Lebanon, I wouldn't say that Hezbollah achieved any of its goals either. Besides, the main Israeli goals were not the ones that you cite, but rather to bloody Hezbollah's nose badly enough so that they will think twice about ever attacking Israel across the Blue Line ever again.
