    Turkey and the United States

    Even though Turkey and the United States are far countries to each other, in two different continets, they have things in common. For example, foundation of both countries depended upon an independnce war. After these wars they declared their indipendencies and switched to democratic sytems. Nevertheless, while Turkey has a parlimentary system, the USA prefers a presidental system. Besides that, the USA consists of the independent states and rules; however, Turkey has only one central government. There is no different law systems in Turkey.

    In case of language, English is the main language in the USA and Turkish is spoken mainly and officially in Turkey. English is taught in the first and secondary schools as a second language in Turkey. Many young Turks are prone to learn and improve their English. However, local people are not always good at understanding and speaking English. And in the USA, speaking Spanish has an increasing trend.


    When you compare the histories of the both nations, you will see that they imigrated their current land, which Turks came in the 11th century and Americans arrived in the 16th. In spite of the fact that they fought with native population, they also mixed their cultures with local people. In terms of world wars, the USA participated the first and second wars, but Turkey remained natural in the second one. Nonetheless, they both have strong armies in the NATO today.

    Did you have an actual question for us, Nordre?

    See above. You cannot use commas to join independent, unrelated clauses.
    Must have put means you have already put something, which you did not.
