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?

    These human animals will simply continue to fight whoever they can. Their brains have been stimulated via meeting the human animal's instinctual needs to kill others in order for their tribes to survive and knowing human animal history it will take another generation or two before they hopefully can move into a more civil world.

    As an American, what really grips me the most is seeing the facist flag of Sheikh Sidi Idris flying in Libya. Calling the "rebels" Libyans is also a big mistake. They are shite Islamic militants, they poured into Libya in Feb, being paid by the phony Prince Senussi, they came from Yemen, Tunisia & Egypt. They are famous for their looting and raping against their Sunni enemies. Giving al Qaeda a billion dollars to use against Europe was Sec. Hillary's biggest mistake.
