What is the Army waiting for? Pakistan lost the democracy quite some time back. This is ANARCHY gentleman. It is now the job and responsibility of the Army to take over and impose curfew and martial law. The politicians can pack and go back to their villas and fancy homes . . . they are Done for good!!!!!
