But those ‘apocalyptic’ sequestration cuts! – Obama sending 100 U.S. troops to Niger to help France in Mali

goofy-hussein-obamaLet me see if I get this straight. If the sequestration goes into affect a week from today, it’s going to be like the Mayan Apocalypse or something. If that’s the case then what the hell is Obama doing sending 100 US Troops to Niger just so they can help the France with their war in Mali? Aren’t we broke? Aren’t we going to have to cut essential services with a puny automatic budget cut that Obama wanted in the first place

President Obama sent about 100 U.S. military personnel to Niger to support the French mission to root out Islamists in Mali, of which he informed Congress today. In his State of the Union address last week, Obama pointed to Mali as an example of how the United States needs to operate in the global war on terror (term out of use) when he said “we’ll need to help countries like Yemen, Libya, and Somalia provide for their own security and help allies who take the fight to terrorists, as we have in Mali.”

    And we all know France isn’t going to be billed for our services.
