I suppose if her name had been Natalie and she'd had blond hair, this girl's fate might be considered a ratings bonanza for the U.S. all-day news
scavengers networks. From The Independent, what happened in Mahmudiya (no similarity to Aruba):
Specialist Barker said he and Sgt Paul Cortez took it in turns to rape the girl, whose body was then doused in kerosene and set alight.
Of course they also killed her family, motivated by a desire to "kill some Iraqis."
How many Americans have heard of Mahmudiya? How many have heard of Aruba? How many wonder why they hate us?
