Schwartenberg. Schwartenberg? Schwartenberg!

So, maybe it wasn't de Gaulle after all.

Apparently, we doubt the Esquire at our peril.

According to Mona Charen, Jan. 14:

Prince Felix Schwartenberg of Austria was asked in 1848 how his country would respond to Russia's help putting down a Hungarian insurrection. "Austria," he replied, "will astound the world with the magnitude of her ingratitude." ....

Confer The Stunning French?

Today [Nov. 23, 2004] is the birthday of Charles de Gaulle, the French general and president (1890-1970) who allegedly told Winston Churchill, regarding the aid and efforts that the Americans and British had provided for the liberation of France from her Nazi overlords: We shall stun you with our ingratitude.

"But it sounds like De Gaulle."
