KABUL - NATO would not oppose individual member nations making deals with Iran to supply their forces in Afghanistan as an alternative to using increasingly risky routes from Pakistan, the alliance's top military commander said Monday.
Gen. John Craddock's comments came just days after NATO's secretary general, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, urged the U.S. and other members of the Western military alliance to engage with Iran to combat Taliban militants in Afghanistan.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Supplies intended for NATO forces in Afghanistan were suspended Tuesday after Taliban militants blew up a highway bridge in the Khyber Pass region, a lawless northwestern tribal area straddling the border with Afghanistan.
Hidayatullah Khan, a government official in the region, was quoted by Reuters as saying that the 30-yard-long iron bridge was located 15 miles northwest of Peshawar, the capital of the restive North-West Frontier Province.[/ex
Unfortunately, until the USA stop allowing Israeli policy to drive their actions, they'll continue the sabre rattling and provocation. With Clinton in charge of the State Dept., having already pledged unswerving support against Iran to Israels FM, and the number of members of the US administration and both houses taking money from AIPAC, I don't see this position changing any time soon.
Well I would reread the post Iran is not supplying NATO they are being considered to USE Iran as supply routes.
They cannot rely on the Pakistan route.
