How quickly until life returns to normal in Libya?

Libya's National Transitional Council says most of the country is now secure and safe and it is just a matter of time before Colonel Gaddafi is apprehended or killed.

Colonel Gaddafi has said that he is ready to fight a long guerrilla war and would rather turn Libya into 'hell' than surrender.
