حرب أهلية؟

if it continues much longer, at some point people will stop referring to the events in libya as a democratic protest movement and start referring to it as a civil war.

i'm not sure when that will happen (nor am i casting any judgment on the opposition movement). but if the pro-qadhafi faction manages to hold on to control of sections of the country while other areas stay outside its control and the two sides interact mostly by shooting at one another, it definitely will be something quite different than what happened in tunisia and egypt.
