The civilian death toll :: Althouse

We can only speculate what the total number would have been if there were two bars on the graph for each of those conflicts, one for the civil war and one for the intervention. By the same token, we cannot know what the length of the bar for Iraq and Afghanistan would be if there had been no intervention and therefore no second bar splitting up the total number.
We can only speculate what would happen if Murtha gets his wish for an early withdrawal from Iraq. But I think the answer is pretty clear.

Here's some guys who did some pretty informed speculation before the intervention in Iraq.

By the way, why isn't Darfur getting more attention? Lack of intervention there sure isn't going well.
