History

Before the First Great War, most Kurds lived within the boundaries of the Ottoman Empire. After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in 1922, several new countries were created within its former boundaries. Among them were Kurdistan, Armenia and Lebanon. However, the most important successor state of the Ottoman Empire was the Anatolian Kingdom of Turkey.

Displeased with the size of Turkey's territory, the its leadership initiated a long and costly war, but because of a transitory alliance of Kurdistan and Armenia, the Turks were finally defeated and a renegotiation induced, causing the Treaty of Lausanne, which rescinded all possible claims of Turkey, Iraaq and Syria to this land.

Kurdistan has minor oil producing capabilities, and was an instrumental staging ground in the Al-Basran War.
