Situation in Libya

How can the Arab World ensure stability in Libya as well as the region of the Middle East and North Africa after intensive armed conflict between the Gadhafi regime and various rebel opposition groups?

In a matter of fifteen days, the Libyan state has been engulfed in a landscape filled with chaos, as oppositional forces supposedly fight against the Gadhafi regime for greater civil and political freedoms with in return would allow for the formulation of a greater Libyan civil society.
