    information/translation. 
    A report by the American newspaper Star and Stripe confirmed, on Wednesday, that the ruling Kurdish parties in northern Iraq are the biggest beneficiaries of the US invasion of Iraq. 
    Many members of the political and business elite live in a suburban gated community dubbed American Village, where homes are selling for up to $5 million, with lush gardens consuming more than a million liters of water per day. in summer".
    He added, "This visible extravagance in the Kurdistan region is a far cry from what it was 20 years ago. At the time, Erbil was an isolated provincial capital without even an airport, but that changed quickly after the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. Analysts say that Iraq's Kurds - and especially the Kurdish political class - have been the biggest beneficiaries of a conflict that had few winners.
    "For ordinary Kurds, the benefits of the new regime have been mitigated by corruption and power struggles between the two main Kurdish parties and between Erbil and Baghdad, the Iraqi capital," he added.
    In the aftermath of the invasion, much of Iraq fell into chaos, as occupying US forces faced an insurgency and many political and sectarian communities competed to fill the remaining power vacuum in Baghdad. But the Kurds, seen as loyal allies of the Americans, strengthened their position. politics and attract foreign investment.
    "The regime change in Baghdad has brought a lot of benefits to this region," Hoshyar Zebari said from his palatial home in Masyaf, a former resort town in the mountains above Erbil that is now home to much of the KDP leadership. 
    For his part, President Abdul Latif Rashid said, "The Kurds were aiming for a democratic Iraq, and at the same time a kind of... self-determination for the Kurdish people," adding, "By overthrowing Saddam's regime by the United States, we have achieved that... We have become a strong group in Baghdad." 
    And the report indicated that "the post-invasion constitution classified the semi-autonomous status of the Kurdish region, while the informal power-sharing arrangement now stipulates that Iraq's president is always Kurdish, the prime minister is Shiite and the speaker of parliament is Sunni."
    "At the same time, Arabs in the Kurdish region and minorities, including Turkmen and Yazidis, feel marginalized in the new regime, as well as Kurds who are not connected to one of the two main parties that act as guardians of opportunity in the Kurdish region," he noted. End/ 25 zd
