Sharon would simply have negotiated the release of the soldiers after having had a small incursion where he killed a similar number of Hezbollah and took perhaps a couple of hostages. Why do I say that? Because it is exactly what he did the last time this event occured...Which is, of course, why Hezbollah did the crime in the first place...Israel had a track record of negotiating for release of prisoners. When Sharon went into Lebanon last time, he went straight for Beirut...15,000 Lebanese died within a couple of years.
