Decimating Al Qaida

President Barack (“Lucky”) Hussein Obama was reared abroad. Hence, he knows English better than most of those who listen to him. When he declared that Al Qaida had been “decimated,” he was probably telling the truth.

To “decimate” means to kill one in ten. It was an old Roman practice used to encourage battlefield valor among the legions.

Did his administration assassinate one out of ten big Al Qaida leaders with drones? That’s quite possible.

“Ah, ah,” he says, “Got you!”

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    They did warn us about his brilliance. Smartest President ever. That’s why it’s silly to ask to see his grades.

  2. Bruce: You and I have no right to see the president’s grades. We sure as hell have the right to keep asking though!

    I will be so humiliated when he finally opens the box and we find that he has an honest B GPA and the rest of his record is completely boring!
