Bernadette, ma chere ! The US DID not support the Taliban against the Russians. When the Russians where in Afghanistan, there were simply NO Taliban. The Taliban came much later after the Russian had evicted.... and guess what, they are still fighting the US. Iran is NOT a decoy of Al-Qaeda. In fact, for your knowledge, Al-Qaeda and Iran are sworn enemies, and have little in common apart from sharing the same enemy (but then even the blessed Christian Mr Chavez of Venezuela is an enemy of the US! So?) The only danger that threatens the world stability and peace come from countries that bully and intimidate others, it comes from a bunch of stupid warmonger neocons, whose brain is smaller than that of an ant! Get your facts right Mademoiselle Bernadette de Ghent!
