The future for Libya and its people is uncertain following a violent crackdown on anti-government protests. Speaking Monday morning on Libyan state television, the son of Moammar Gadhafi warned, "Libya is not like Egypt. It consists of tribes and clans — it is not a society with parties and so on. Everyone knows their area, everyone knows their duties. Then this could cause civil war. We will go back to the civil war of 1936."
