What happens after Gadhafi's regime falls?

Fareed Zakaria joins Brooke to discuss the ongoing situation in Libya.  As Fareed explains, the situation is Libya is not a civil war.  These  rebel fighters are made up of different tribes from varying areas of Libya, who have united in order to bring Gadhafi down.  However, once Moammar Gadhafi is removed as leader of Libya (an outcome that Zakaria says is inevitable), what happens next?  Will the rebel fighters simply lay down their weapons and turn power over to the newly-formed National Transition Council (NTC)?  If so, what kind of power will the NTC wield, and how will they choose to use it?
