Iraq has been battling terrorism since the US-led invasion in 2003. Analysts blame the invasion and western foreign policies for Iraq's insecurity that has led to terrorism and violence to thrive.

The UN says that over 1,300 Iraqis were killed in August alone in terror attacks or by violence. Meanwhile, the Daesh terrorist group has executed 112 of its own members in Iraq's Nineveh Province. The group has also released a new video purportedly showing the burning of four Iraqi soldiers by the terrorist group. Daesh has also abducted 200 civilians and blown up mosques in Anbar Province.

In this episode of Comment we ask our viewers about the gravest menace that threatens Iraq at present.
