France's Secret Plan To Conquer The World

MILLAU, France (AP) – Thundering fighter jets streamed the blue, white and red of the French tricolor as President Jacques Chirac on Tuesday dedicated the world’s tallest bridge, a skyway span dwarfing the Eiffel Tower by more than 50 feet.

Chirac underscored the national pride stirred by the bridge by lifting a French flag from its ceremonial plaque, followed by air force jets trailing the colors of France.

“This exceptional opening will go down in industrial and technological history,” Chirac said, praising the designers and builders for creating “a prodigy of art and architecture — a new emblem of French civil engineering.”

The bridge will serve as a symbol of “a modern and conquering France,” he said.

My sneaking suspicion is that they may have just built the world’s newest terrorist magnet (photo), but I’ll hand it too them it’s nice looking – for a bridge…
