Oh what a whacky ironic twist...its a natural......
Looks like the US may be hoist by its own petard....
What would the alliance look like im not sure...and aren't the Taliban Terrorists?
Sure does change the Afghanistan game a bit if its true...
“When the Russians can poke a stick in the eye of the United States and NATO and the costs aren’t perceived as too high, they will do so because, frankly, it makes them feel good,” Simes told Yahoo News.
It would make sense that Russia would side with the taliban, as America is Al-Qaeda.
Al-Qaeda stands for database, or literally in this use 'database of operatives the CIA used in the Afghan War against Russia'.
Al-Qaeda (/ælˈkaɪdə/ or /ˌælkɑːˈiːdə/; Arabic: القاعدة al-qāʿidah, Arabic: [ælqɑːʕɪdɐ], translation: "The Base", "The Foundation" or "The Fundament" and alternatively spelled al-Qaida, al-Qæda

Taliban is a local word for "student".
US & USSR, or at least the men who call most literal shots in the establishments thereof, have been playing good cop bad cop with Afghanistan for a minute because:
China is more peopled than both combined and mightier in many respects, and its shotcaller caste like opium, which is made in Afhanistan. Wars ensure continued high production and drug pyramid stability.
Afghanis let this happen because USSR & US are alleged ذمّي. Which shotcallers may or may not be.
Is that not widely known by now? How many years and costs of war?
