That's exactly what I said. Saudi supports the Taliban, Iran supports Shia groups.


Tell me another story please.

State Department: Iran supports Taliban, Iraqi militants

Hmmm:


ran’s views of the Taliban have changed considerably since 2001. Iran did not recognize the Taliban government and considered them an ideological nemesis and a major security threat that was created by Pakistan’s ISI, with generous financial support from Saudi Arabia partly for the purpose of spreading Wahhabism and undermining Iran. When the Taliban were in power in the 1990s, Iran, along with India and Russia, provided significant support to the Northern Alliance, which was the principal opposition force to Taliban rule and eventually dislodged them. Iran also contributed to dismantling the Taliban regime and to establishing a new government in Kabul in 200



oday, the Taliban have evolved into a formidable armed organization fighting U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan. Ironically, the strategic interests of Tehran and Taliban have converged today, as each, independent of the other and for different reasons, oppose the presence of foreign troops in Afghanistan and demand their immediate and unconditional withdrawal.

Iran supports the Northern Alliance, not the taliban.

"It's not a secret anymore: Iran is supporting the Taliban militia in the country's south-western and western provinces," Danish Karokhel, a senior journalist and director of Pajhwok – a leading Kabul-based Afghan news agency – told Central Asia Online.



"Iran has been supporting the Taliban militia and other groups for the past 10 years," Tuwhidi told Central Asia Online.



"Iran is playing double games in Afghanistan," Rafiullah Khan – an author of several books on Afghan politics and a political observer – said.

Wasn't bin Laden captured with a damning pornography stash. And shortly after I changed my avatar name to Abaddon on another forum Bin Laden was captured in Abottabad.

A game of goosies and ganders?

Maybe they learned that two sides against the middle game from us. Heck. any savvy two year old American child plays that game adeptly so don't make it sound like Iran invented the tactic.
