Victory Column For Barack Obama

Barack Obama is to give a speech in front of the Victory Column in Germany:

The Victory Column (German: Siegessäule (help·info)) is a famous sight in Berlin. Designed by Heinrich Strack after 1864 to commemorate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian war, by the time it was inaugurated on 2 September 1873 Prussia had also defeated Austria in the Austro-Prussian War (1866) and France in the Franco-Prussian War (1870/1871), giving the statue a new purpose.

This should keep the French amused.
