There will never be a way to give an accurate count. However the number of 1 million has probably been used more than any other. The same thing holds true about the amount of US casualties Many reports say that the count is deliberately low and doesn't include thousands of true casualties. Figures lie and liars figure. Never more true than today. It also doesn't cover how many civilians are still dying from the radiation and chemicals dumped all over the land and water in that part of the world.

Statistics.

Statistically, had Saddam remained in power he would have killed off more people, based on the number of deaths in his two decade tenure prior to Gulf War 2. On that basis alone, the invasion seems justified.

The problem for all these calculations is that most Iraqi deaths have been caused by internecine killings and not through the direct actions of the Coalition. Arguably, had the Coalition been better planned to maintain order once the Iraqi army collapsed, the number of Iraqi on Iraqi deaths could have been significantly reduced.

Based on what numbers, the ones Rumsfeld gave us?
