5. It seems Israel already is looking for an out
Check out what the statements by Israel's Defense Minister. They're at the bottom of the article:

"We are responsible for considering all options," Peretz said while visiting the northern border, accompanied by Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Dan Halutz and GOC Northern Command Udi Adam.

"The minute troops set out to accomplish a mission, we must look in the eyes of every mother, every father and every child and say: We exhausted all other options," Peretz said.

Peretz said an integrated effort between the diplomatic and military plains was being made.

He presented four conditions set by Israel for an end to the fighting: The demilitarization of southern Lebanon, the deployment of a multi-national force in southern Lebanon, a real commitment to disarm Hezbollah and setting an outline for a plan to return the abducted IDF soldiers and removing the Katyusha rocket threat.

Where I placed the emphasises demonstrates to me where Israel will seek an out of the UN Resolution, while stalling for time to reaccess the horrific tangle they got themselves into. It is doubtful the UN would want to go about disarming Hezbollah, and it is also doubtful the Lebanese army both has the capacity, or even the will at this point to do so. Israel knows this.
