    1) Why would Syria agree to give the Shab'a Farms to Lebanon? Why can't it be given to NATO to police until everyone agrees on its going back where it came from? 2) If Israel is not sure it wishes to negotiate with the Lebanese government for the release of the prisoners and refuses to speak to Hizballah, who is left to be spoken to and how will it get its two soldiers back? 3) As Hizballah is part of the Lebanese government, population and consequently army, they would be back on the border in different uniforms, under a different flag, right? 4) Worrying about what will be viewed as Hizballah achievements is puerile. Its fans will view the whole episode as a success no matter what the final outcome, and its foes will blame it for bringing wanton destruction of its own country (and probably not for the damage they have caused here). Whatever is decided, our occupation of that strip = war of attrition leading to heaven knows what.
