600,000 Iraqis Dead?

Although the 600,000 Iraqis have died number has been discredited over and over, some still believe it, see the comments here. If that number is correct, then why on the news last night did I hear that violence in Iraq is at an all time high with as many as 100 Iraqis dead each day this month? Because if you do the math, 100 per day for the duration of the war, the number would be about 130,000. Now even 1 death is tragic but for someone to claim 600,000 dead is flat out absurd.
