    Actually less then 100,000 died and almost all of them due to terrorist bombings or Insurgent attacks. But hey never let a good lie die right?

    Well there has been over a million Iraqi casualties...at least if you include wounded in the count. Depending on the source you look at (which is only a google search away) some estimates are a million dead too.

    My question is: "so what?" Just using wiki (yes I know wiki sucks but for this point it will do) we waxed about 2.5 million in Vietnam and almost 4 million in Korea (military and civilian combined). In World War II it was about 72 million. I'd say a 1 million body count is pretty low by comparison. And as I said...no one likes killing civilians, but civilians die in war. There's never been a war where civilians didn't get wasted and frankly the civilian body count is usually higher than the military body count.

    War is a brutal thing. That's all there is to it.

    Don't we have to blame: Al Qaeda, Iran/Hezbollah and Saddam-ists?

    These results are much, much higher than other studies, which place the number of violent deaths anywhere from about 60,000 to about 150,000. The World Health organization's study estimated 151,000 violent deaths and the Iraqi Health Minister believed this number was too high. Leaked classified US military estimates put the number at 109,000.

    On the Other hand,

    So it is reasonable to assume that the US invasion of Iraq saved Iraqi lives overall.
