    Shafaq News/ The American newspaper "The Christian Science Monitor" monitored the broad prosperity movement witnessed by the Kurdistan Region during the past two decades, which is completely in contrast to what the region looked like before 2003. 



    The American report, translated by Shafaq News Agency, indicated; Erbil has undergone transformations over the past twenty years, including American-style highways lined with fast food restaurants and real estate offices, and high-rise buildings where many members of the political elite and merchants reside in a suburban gated community dubbed the "American Village." , in which the price of the house reaches 5 million dollars, and is decorated with gardens that consume more than one million liters of water per day during the summer. 
    The report pointed out that this extravagance is a far cry from the situation 20 years ago, when Erbil at that time was isolated and had no airport, which changed quickly after the US-led invasion in 2003 to topple Saddam Hussein.
    The report quoted analysts as saying that the Kurds were the biggest beneficiaries of what happened, but the benefits they got disappeared because of corruption issues and the ongoing conflict between the two main parties in the region, and between Erbil and Baghdad. 
    The report added that after the invasion, many regions of Iraq fell into chaos, but the Kurds strengthened their political position and attracted foreign investments, and Erbil quickly grew to turn into a thriving city, and two years later it opened a new commercial airport that was built with Turkish money, followed by years later. A more spacious international airport.
    The report quoted Bilal Wahab, a researcher at The Washington Institute, as saying that the traditional narrative is that the Kurdish is the victim of grievances, but that Iraq since 2003 "is no longer the Kurdish narrative. The story is the story of strength and empowerment." 
    The report mentioned the West's commitment to the Kurds with a national homeland for them after World War I through the "Sevres Institutes" in 1920, but Kurdistan has been fragmented since then, and Kurdish rebellions have taken place since that time in Iran, Iraq and Turkey, while in Syria, the Kurds clashed with the factions supported by the Turkey.
    The report quoted a prominent leader in the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Hoshyar Zebari, who served as foreign minister in the first Iraqi government in the post-Saddam Hussein era, as saying, "We established our own institutions, the parliament, the government (...) and we had a civil war of our own, but we overcame that." ". 
    "The regime change in Baghdad has brought many benefits to this region," Zebari added. 
    The report also drew attention to Iraqi President Abd al-Latif Rashid, who is from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, and gave an optimistic assessment of post-2003 developments, saying that the Kurds were aiming to establish a "democratic Iraq, and at the same time achieve a kind of self-determination for the Kurdish people," adding that he is with Overthrowing Saddam Hussein, "we have achieved that (..) we have become a strong group in Baghdad." 
    The report quoted Wahab as saying; The economic success achieved by Erbil after 2003 was affected by widespread waste and nepotism in the public sector, explaining that "corruption in the system undermines the potential."
    The report also quoted the leader of the Justice Group in Kurdistan, Ali Babir, as accusing the two ruling parties of "treating people who do not belong to them as third- and fourth-class citizens." 
    The report quoted a group of university students as hoping to emigrate abroad. A woman who gave only her first name, "Gala", said, "Before, hard work was enough to succeed in life, and if you study well and get good grades, you will have a good opportunity and a good job, but now it is completely different as it should be." You have relationships."
