US and Turkey are ally as they share the common democratic values but Turkey does not owe anything to anybody. .Because, turkey did not import its democracy from US via US Marines like some other countries.Plus, It improved it with its own experiences. and As far as I know Turkey does not benefit from american financial aid eventhough US has military base in turkey. As to the commitment to Europe. Europe has to fulfill its own commitment to Turkey about EU membership. (50 yrs passed). I dont even talk about turkish-Israeli relations coz These are all different issues. Philip Gordon is an assistant and he will remain so, unless he learns the political realities.
