Israel should already be at the Litani. All the retired generals on CNN say so. The Israeli government is treating this war as a skirmish from which they hope to be bailed out by the UN.

The UN will be logjammed for weeks, and Israel should win the war decisively meanwhile instead of dithering about like Donald Rumsfeld in Iraq.
