Pakistan's president returns after medical treatment

Pakistan's president returned to the country early Monday after having undergone medical treatment in Dubai, an official told CNN.

President Asif Ali Zardari, who flew with his daughter and doctor, landed at an air force base in the southern port city of Karachi, said Sindh Home Minister Manzoor Wassan.

Sindh is the province where Karachi is located.

The president's sudden departure from Pakistan on December 6 sparked rumors in the country of his possible resignation and a soft coup.

    The doctors surgically removed a large bad thought, "the military will overthrow me" from Jardari's brain.
    Now he feels fine that is until Gilani starts talking to him, then same problem is gonna start again, and again more surgery.
