Vietnam has unveiled a new steel bridge shaped like a dragon that literally shoots fire from its mouth.

The 1,864-foot-long bridge is designed with steel arches that serve as the body of the dragon, which is modeled after one from the nolink Dynasty.

At night, the Dragon Bridge is illuminated by more than 2,500 LED lights and can launch giant plumes of fire and jets of water.

The Dragon Bridge was unveiled on the 38th anniversary of the North Vietnamese forces capturing the city during the final days of the Vietnam War. During the war, it was home to a significant air base used by U.S. and South Vietnamese forces.

The six-lane bridge is in the Vietnamese city of Da Nang, cost about $85 million to construct and was built by the Louis Berger Group, a New Jersey-based construction and architecture firm.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
