Dedicated to the Army?

Did Wasim Akram really say on Sky yesterday, after Pakistan's ICC T20 win, "This win is dedicated to the brave Army of Pakistan"?

I think I know what he was getting at, but given the context and background, it was an asinine dedication to make.

Awesome! So after "thanking Muslims" in 2007 to the Army in 2009! Progress? Waddle they say next?

What do you want him to say Samir Chopra? Should he say 'go man go?' Should he say 'frequent wins are not be ashamed of? Or should he go on his knees and say a growling cat is not a lion?

Perhaps he should play Aristotle to your Vengsarkar?

Scribbler: I have no idea :)

Kuckoos: You want to run your comment through a demangler, and then try again?

Why is this any different to say Americans thanking their brave soldiers for being over in Iraq,(and fighting for corporate interests)? Or is OK to congratulate a western army when they are overseas fighting for "national interests" (read imperialism) but not so when you're thanking an army trying to keep a nation together at home?

As you sow, so shall you reap.

Khan: Thanks for your comment. It deserves a longer response and I'll soon make one.
