Perhaps with all the rumors about US attacking Iran he rather step down than be in charge of his army when the the time to chose sides comes to the table.

Back the USA attack against another muslim country or take side with its fellow muslim people.

I can see already the protest in the streets in Pakistan.

Seems to be related to this:

Bhutto 'close to Musharraf deal'

Former Pakistani PM Benazir Bhutto says she is close to reaching a deal to share power with President Musharraf.

The embattled military ruler is seeking support for presidential elections that could give him another five-year term.

But he is under pressure to reach a deal with the opposition after several Supreme Court rulings went against him.

Ms Bhutto told the BBC that most issues had been resolved, but an agreement had not been finalised. She wants a clear statement he will resign as army chief.

I suppose it's true. But there's nothing yet on the prez's website:
