Proportionate outrage

Why is it so difficult to understand that stopping the Israelis now will lead only to more deaths in the future? That if Hezbollah is not hurt badly now then all the suffering that has occurred so far will be to no end but that of reinforcing those that started and financed it? I realise that it is often irresistible to strike the tone of humanitarian outrage, but here it is so out of place.
