Pakistan is in turmoil today. The democracy which it saw on the blood of Benezir Bhutto has long been forgotten. Democracy is the best option for Pakistan, yet it seems the state is again heading towards a military rule led by Kayani. In fact, Kayani is a trusted ally of the US and the latter may support him since the PPP government is not able to control the insurgency there. What should the PPP government do to stop any such possibilities?

I think the plain answer is Yes. There were so many reports in today's newspaper that suggested that General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, the military head of Pakistan, had put the Gilani government to notice. He had reportedly pointed out the current government's failure to stop intrusion by Taliban and the overall law and order situation in the country in general for his decision. Currently Pakistan is destabilized by a lot of internal conflicts and I do not see any future for the common man living there. I hope the matter is sorted out, for the well being of the average man.

As expected the matter has not been sorted out..but the frequency of the terrorism strike has increased substantially. Whether military rule or not, the situation is really pathetic. What should be the approach of government of India in this respect, seeing the strong relationship that the US has with them ?

The straight answer must be no because US would not like a military rule in Pakistan. Mr. Bush, former president in US, didn't care if Pakistan had military rule but now Mr. Obama looks like he will not allow it to happen.
