Study of history shows that folks speaking the same language tend to communicate better amongst themselves. This is obvious. In the fog of war, folks speaking the same language tend to target those that do not.
I am not trying to provoke any fighting. Just mentioning history.
Even what is called "Civil War" is rarely so. To wit, our revolution in 1776 was British vs British. American (the ones seeing their parioitic duty as fight off the British Army & Navy where theselves mostly British. The British regular Army & Navy were hard pressed to shoot other British subjects (American or elsewhere). Not popular as all. King George hired the Hessian Army, a professional army out of Southern Germany. "The Hessians are coming!"
In the US Civil, foreign military was ever present.
Also note the adventures of the French Foreign Legion & other mercenary armies. The tended to battle against those that spoke other languages.
Sorry I could not be more specific. We are now at war with so many countries, I loss track of who we are told are our enemies. And why?
