ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of Iraq's security. The withdrawal of U.S. forces accelerated domestic and foreign security risks. The failure of Iraq's Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to keep his promised to the junior coalition partners can destabilise the government with the Sunni and Kurdish politicians accusing him of becoming increasingly authoritarian. Foreign powers are also expected to become more assertive towards Iraq including Turkey and Iran.
