What’s the Matter with Sri Lanka and the Netherlands?
Why all the discontent?
The ongoing unrest in Sri Lanka just hit the 100th-day landmark as of this writing, July 17th. Just before a mass of protestors stormed the country’s presidential palace (note to Reps. Pelosi, Schiff, Ocasio-Cortez, et.al.: this is what a real insurrection looks like), President Gotabaya Rajapaksa hightailed it out of there. He e-mailed his resignation from Singapore while en route to the Maldives. The protestors are now working on convincing his interim successor to do likewise.
