Can anybody show me a link that has the estimated total number of people Saddam has killed??
Laurie Mylroie and Judith Miller wrote a book in the 80's that estimated Saddam killed well over one million people at that time.
There is no way to know. Secretive society, etc.
I do not have the links but I would urge you to include the casualties of the Iran/Iraq war which most analysts blame on Saddam.
This war killed about 1 million Iranians and Iraqis.
Roughly 500,000 people were killed by Saddam in domestic purges such as the Kurdish chemical attacks and the Shiite uprising after gulf war 1.
This makes a total of roughly 1.5 million.
1.3 million to 2 million seem to be the best range of estimates. (Shiites, Kurds, murders of friends and enemies, and then add it a million or so for the Iran war. A few more for Kuwait.)

or Google Saddam genocide
You registered today just to blame the US for Saddam's killings and to suggest that the US has made prisoners disappear? And you found a thread that's been dead for 6 months to do it?
Spelling, punctuation, and your sign up date suggest you might be a troll.
