The war is still unnamed, but the New Republic opines that Israel did not gain its objectives (emphasis added):
For the fact is that the wrath of Israel is precisely what was not visited upon Hezbollah. In a whole month of fighting, Israel made no significant change in the battlefield. The crowing about the capture of Bint Jbail is embarrassing–the severity of the combat there notwithstanding. In this war, Israel’s political and military leadership projected only ambivalence and indecision. It fought Hezbollah in the bankrupt style of Donald Rumsfeld, venerating air power and scanting ground troops.
