Iran is increasing its support of the Taliban. The idea: If the US attacks Iran's nuclear program, an alliance with the Taliban would be a perfect way to strike US forces in Afghanistan. Iran could provide the Taliban with surface to air missiles, light arms, and weapons that could kill many US service men stationed there. As if things could not get any worse:

All this is mostly speculation.

There are no sources for this information, just conjecture. I'll believe it when there's some actual proof and not just more war drum beating by media outlets.

it is odd, really odd, because Taliban has been always the enemy of Iran !

"""Following the emergence of the Taliban and their harsh treatment of Afghanistan's Shi'a ethnic Hazaras, Iran stepped up assistance to the Northern Alliance. Relations with the Taliban deteriorated further in 1998 after Taliban forces seized the Iranian consulate in Mazari Sharif and executed Iranian diplomats. Following this incident, Iran almost went to war with the Taliban but intervention by the United Nations Security Council and the United States prevented it."""

"""
The Taliban was a construct of the CIA and was armed by the CIA….Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher
It seemed like a great idea, back in the ’80s to– embolden– and train and equip– Taliban, mujahidin, jihadists against the Soviet Union, which had invaded Afghanistan. And with our help, and with the Pakistani support– this group– including, at that time, Bin Laden, defeated the Soviet Union. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Oct. 7th, 2009""

The only problem with that is that the Taliban weren't around in the 80s. Some former Mujaheddin fighters 7 years later formed up as the "Taliban" as we know them today in the mid 90s. Also, Iran has major issues with their own internal problems with certain Iranian Mujaheddin.

The topic is speculation at best.
