Dr Pipes:

My forty years experience living in Pakistan tells me that Pakistanis are SICK and TIRED of its Military Dictators, Corrupt rulers and US intervention in almost all of their matters.

There are top generals in Pak Army who HATE Mr. Mushraff for bowing down to the West, Brutal policies towards its own citizens resulting in suicide bombings against their soldiers, Firing of top Judges, Restrictions on the media etc..

You presented 4 "catalysts" to seize power: Revolution, Coup d'etat, Civil war, Terrorism.

I suspect its going to be a Coup d'etat from a senior Core Commander and its going to be very soon.
