The first fact to keep in mind is that the territory directly administered by the KRG was determined unilaterally -- undemocratically -- by dictatorial decree in October 1991 following the first Gulf war earlier that year. The Baghdad regime instituted and militarized the separation, and abandoned over 3 million Iraqi citizens. Food and fuel supplies, and electricity, were cut, and much more. Following the enforced demarcation, in November 1991, the regime forcibly displaced more than 100,000 Iraqi citizens from Kirkuk areas into KRG territory.
