  whiteshark: <That Roger: <"The wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan have taken a tremendous human toll on those countries. As of March 2015, approximately 210,000 civilians have died violent deaths as a result of the wars.">> Source??

Here's my:

"We can estimate that the <number of Iraqis killed as a consequence of the illegal invasion of their country> must be somewhere between 1.5 million and 3.4 million. As is generally the case with such statistical ranges, the actual number of people killed is likely to be closer to our main estimate of <2.38 million> than to either the minimum or maximum end of this range."
