Assyrians "disappeared" the way Babylonians and Sumerians disappeared...meaning they didn't go anywhere....they just married and mixed and took on the culture and language of the next dominant group to rule the area.
As we never tire of telling our children, "forget your language and you'll soon forget your history and who you are"...which is EXACTLY what happened to the ancient Assyrians who abandoned their Akkadian language for the language of the Arameans and soon enough "forgot who they were".
No Assyriologist has EVER claimed that Assyrians were literally wiped off the face of the earth...this is a straw-dog argument our idiots pose, putting these words into the mouths and the writings of Assyriologists...so they can "refute" their supposed claims.
Assyriologists use the word "disappear" in the sense that the consciousness, the memory, of their Assyrian ancestry disappeared...to be replaced by another identity...as has been happening for thousands of years.
It's the same way our idiots deal with sharp reduction in numbers of Christians after the Arab Conquest....."where did all those Christians go to"? Their answer is, of course, "Islam murdered them all". Of course no such thing happened...they merely converted to the NEXT religion to sweep by, as they had to Christianity before.
