Russia, Iran still provide weapons to Taliban: Mattis
 KABUL: US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has accused Iran and Russia of continuing their armed support to Afghan Taliban, a media report said on Saturday.
The Pentagon chief blasted Russia and Iran’s continued support to Taliban jihadists, echoing concerns previously expressed by US officials, including Gen. Nicholson, who has also noted that Pakistan is assisting the terrorist group as well.
“Those two countries have suffered losses to terrorism, so I think it would be extremely unwise if they think they can somehow support terrorism in another country and not have it come back to haunt them,” declared Mattis, referring to Iran and Russia. The Wall Street Journal reported.
Support from Russia and Iran is strengthening the Taliban and lending legitimacy to the jihadist organization, notes the newspaper, citing unnamed U.S. military officials.
 Russia and Iran have conceded sharing information with the Taliban to fight their mutual enemy, the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), but both countries deny providing military assistance to the group.
Afghanistan’s neighbor Iran, which the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) recently said “remain the foremost state sponsor of terrorism,” has also dismissed accusations that it is providing sanctuary to the Taliban.

The ancient Egyptians valued silver because they considered it to be rare. They believed that the skin of the gods consisted of gold and their bones were made from silver. Similarly, in the ancient Aztec belief system, precious metals were said to have come from the gods. Gold represented excrement of the sun gods and silver was believed to be the excrement of the moon gods. This precious material was procured for the Spanish Empire by the conquistadors, which led to European commercial use of silver coins. In turn, the currency of the United States of America was based on the value of silver.
