A few observations on this:

The National Front for the Salvation of Libya (NFSL) are old friends and partners of the CIA and especiaslly MI6, who seemed to have helped MI6 kill a British policewoman woman in the mid 1980s to justify aggression against Libya. They also have been behind terrorist acts in Libya in the 1980s, one of which killed nearly 90 Cubans, East Germans and Libyans.

In this debate the NFSL are annoyed at their senior colleague, the former British ambassador to Libya, for not helping them more when the thaw came in Libyan-western relations in the early 2000s.

What is striking is that the NFSL are basically asking the British to take over Libya, so much so that the former ambassador states that he hopes they are not asking Britain to re-colonise Libya!

The other obvious point to make is why is Al-Jazeera presenting the NFSL and this former British ambassador to Libya as the main authoritative voices on the Libyan situation?

Why is Al-Jazeera not exposing and attacking, and agitating the masses (as they have been doing in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Palestine) to rise up against British PM Cameron's selling of arms right now in the Gulf, but instead allowing their channel to be used by Cameron to attack Libya, and silence on the arms sales in the Gulf? And why is Al-Jazeera presenting the Bahrainian uprising in a sectarian way as they are constantly pushing the line that Bahrain has more to do with the Shia community and Iran?

The contours of US strategy toward Libya are rapidly coming into focus. Imperialism's overarching priority is to maintain the gains produced earlier US intervention that produced Gaddafi's turn toward neoliberalism and reapprochment with the US and Europe during Bush Adminstration. which is why the US and NATO efforts now appear to be focused on precipitating a coup d'etat to replace Gaddafi with a suitable candidate drawn from the growing number of regime defectors getting considerable coverage on AJE who willing to play ball and guarantee those interests, and capable of demobilizing or coopting the popular movement

"Gaddafi has been creating divisions within the Libyan population and know they all stand united against him"
how correct is that ?
