During the American Revolutionary War (American War of Independence; 1775–1783), France recognized and allied itself with the United States in 1778, declared war on Great Britain, and sent its armies and navy to fight Britain while providing money and matériel to arm the new republic. French intervention made a decisive contribution to the U.S. victory in the war.
Without the similar support from the United States the Assyrian Army will not be able to take the fight to ISIS in the hearth of their own homeland.
“The Assyrian Army is in dire need of military support from the United States to protect Christian communities in Iraq and Syria against the genocide they are facing at the hands of the barbaric Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), according to a decorated American military veteran advising the force.”
“As much as you’re giving money to all these individuals who are killing each other, why don’t you try to give it to the Assyrians?” he added, addressing the United States. “Anybody who fights just for money will be a failure, but when you give money to individuals who are fighting for their homeland, they’ll be successful.”
“The Assyrian Army wants to fight, the problem is that you’re sending mixed signals to them every time you support different organizations, different groups, nobody really knows what your strategic plan is in the region,” said Lt. Col. Sangari when asked what message he had for President Obama.
