ABSTRACT
Forty-two years of dictatorship in Libya ended in October 2011. It took the Western-backed armed uprising seven months of fighting against Qaddafi's loyal forces. The fall of his regime is a welcome event in the Middle East and northern Africa. But, unlike Tunisia and Egypt, Libya does not have a standing army or a reliable force that can bring the stability needed for a political transition. The tribal nature of Libya and the difficulty of disarming the rebels and other groups pose serious challenges to the new authorities in Tripoli. Unless these difficulties are handled properly, Libya will face a long period of uncertainty.
