A lot of civilian deaths by IED and murder ( whatever that is ).
However, we need to remember that the death-count here of over 100,000 Iraqis is that reported by the Allies i.e. the invaders in this war. The infamous quote "We don't do body counts" by Gen Tommy Franks leading US army said it all.
The neutral view on the number of people who died (by respected Lancet medical journal) was over 600,000 deaths by Oct-2006 alone. That research is the best we have and tragically, things are not over yet.
After all we don't know how many he enemy has killed <- DuH no brainer.
Even I would not keep count, in fact how could I, keep a count in the first place?
There are ways to count and if we don't we are ignoring what we have done. Then we sit around and wonder why people are mad at us and want us dead.
How to count deaths in Iraq? I'll give you three ways.
1) Count the civilian dead bodies in morgues that have bullet holes or shrapnel as COD. 100,000 Iraq dead. The US and allied forces did not count but they think this is a reasonable number. Iraqbodycount also comes up with this same number.
2) Count the dead bodies in morgues that have bullet holes or shrapnel as COD plus count all dead bodies that look like they met a bad end with documents showing war had something to do with it. 600,000 Iraq dead. The journal Lancet did a decent job and cam up with this number. There was no extrapolation so the number, they so in the conclusions, is going to be low.
3) You take the population numbers prior to US invasion and the numbers post invasion and find the delta after subtracting out all death by common nonviolent means. 1,600,000 Iraq dead.
If we listen to General Tommy "we don't do body counts" Frank we will just continue making the same mistakes we are making. Obama is making the same mistakes right now increasing unmanned drone attacks thus increasing civilian deaths which only makes more terrorists than it kills.
