IMO It's time to start the 'coup clock'.
I give it less than a month.
Probably a false-flag scenario: Some jihadi will get through all the security the PMO's office could muster (much of which will vanish in the last 30 seconds of the regime, only to return promptly after the follow-up blast or whatever instantly kills the assassin -- so no one to ask questions of).
Or maybe an incident in flight or otherwise in travel; something complicated and not immediately blamable on the generals.
There'll be a state of emergency for a brief period, then military rule as per usual. Stabilization funds will flow thereafter.
My wager: Within 30 days from now. (I know, I'm leaving a wide window, because I'm not "a betting man" usually.)
Highly doubt it
The jernails will not risk making him a martyr in the eyes of the awaam.
They will first systematically destroy the artificially created pedestal on which he stands and discredit him in every which way. And his Western connections and links will take some time to be neutralised.
Then and only then will he be halaaled
But even then it is highly unlikely.
Of course some paki jernails may show their usual strategic brilliance and do what you have said
