Pak army continues as 'centre' of country's political decision-making despite Osama Abbottabad disgrace

   May 3, 2:28 pm

Islamabad, May 3 (ANI): The Pakistan's military regime still continues to maneuver the country's political decisions even as the military was thrown in an international disrepute following the aftermath of US Navy SEAL operation that killed Osama bin Laden last May.

The incident may have led some Pakistanis to wonder if the civilian government could seize upon the military's embarrassment to establish greater control over the country's army, but clearly, the answer was 'no'.

On the eve of the anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death, Pakistan Army Chief Gen. Ashfaq Kayani gave a speech Monday at the Pakistani military's headquarters in Rawalpindi.

Kayani decided to use the occasion to announce the Army's position on the country's political climate as Pakistan has been rocked in recent days by the Supreme Court decision which found Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani guilty of contempt, a ruling that the opposition is using to call for his resignation.

"We [Pakistan's leaders] should always act in such a way, that our self-respect and dignity is enhanced," the Christian Science Monitor quoted Kayani, as saying, who rejected a civilian government and civilian political atmosphere as a whole.

Military rulers have run Pakistan for the majority of the country's history, and wielded enormous clout behind the scenes even during alleged civilian administrations. But even as a year has passed by since the death of bin Laden, the army in Pakistan was seen, only to be rebounding back. (ANI)
