What is the real death toll in Iraq?

The results range from just under 100,000 dead to well over a million. Inevitably, the issue has become a political football, with the Bush administration, the British government and other supporters of the US-led occupation seizing on the lowest estimates and opponents on the highest.

Just Foreign Policy notes:

Thus, a cautious, balanced appraisal based on available scientific information would suggest an Iraqi death toll today of between 300,000 and 1.2 million since March 2003.
