The Kurds in northern Iraq have autonomy. They have a government for the region, and the instruments of rule in terms of administrations, institutions, and armed forces. This regime begin in an embryonic way at the beginning of the 1990s of the last century, as a result of the defeat of the Iraqi army in Kuwait, and because of the American desire, under the auspices of the administration of Bush Senior and the Clinton administration, to blockade the regime of Saddam Hussein and not to overthrow it. This regime has currently become constitutional and legal, in light of the new Iraqi situation."
