Question about English (US)

The General James Mattis of US Marine once had stated, to Iraqui tribal leaders, as follows;

"I come in peace I didn't bring artillery,
but I'm pledging with you, with tears in my eyes,
if you fuck with me, I'll kill you all"

Q): Is "i pledge with you" a commonly used expression?. I mean, shouldn't it be "i pledge to you", instead?.

What difference would it make b'twn saying "with" and "to" here?.

Thank you.
