Count of Iraqi war dead

I've been trying to find this number. Chris Bowers over at MyDD puts it at 12,000 and lists each one individually. That's 16 Iraqi deaths per US death. It's also more than one fifth the total number of US service personnel killed in the Vietnam War (from 8 June 1956 through 29 April 1975: 58,148).
