    The military has used the Ambassador's faux pas (who anyway was anti military given the book he wrote as also a Jamaait fan) and has tightened it grip over the country, even though the civilian Govt has survived.

    The civilian govt was, as it is, not in control, but with all the shenanigans on, the military will appear as the sole saviour of the country.

    The attempt by Zardari to cut the Army to size has failed.

    What will Pakistan politics and governance look like in the future and will the ascendency of the Army make the situation sour with India?

    The Ambassador's memo exposed the double game played by the military and their support for terrorists.

    Even Nawaz Sharif asked for US help during their kargil fiasco to tame the Pakistan military.

    It just shows that the civilian govt want the Army to play its role as per the Constitution, but having tasted blood, it survives as the supreme dispenser of Pakistan's fate!
