Islamabad: A military coup in Pakistan has
become inevitable as the country is fast descending into chaos
because of the "failure" of the political leadership, some top
commanders feel.

They reportedly aired their views during the last Corps
Commanders` meeting held in Rawalpindi on September 8, but
were snubbed by army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani.
A "few participants" in the meeting had raised the issue
of an army takeover, The News daily reported today, quoting
its sources.

The Inter-Services Public Relations had "issued no press
release at the end of the meeting," the report said.
However, the daily also quoted an unnamed senior
military official as denying that the military takeover issue
was discussed, saying it was not true.
The newspaper quoted its sources as saying that
"quite a few participants of the meeting thought a military
takeover was the only way to steer the country out of multiple
crises, as the political leadership has failed the masses."

Kayani, together with some other commanders, "urged
restraint and patience, saying the civilian government should
be given more time to tackle the burning issues," the report
