Coup looks increasingly likely in Pakistan

A military coup in Pakistan looks increasingly likely after President Zardari left the country for a "medical check-up" in Dubai today, for the second time in a month.
At Army HQ in Rawalpindi, army chief General Kayani met with his top commanders to discuss the widening rift between the armed forces and the civilian government. While Kayani is thought to be reluctant to mount a coup, he may be happy to allow the Supreme Court to dismiss the government for failing to investigate a corruption case levelled against the President. The deadline on that matter is Monday.
