Iran has been actively fighting ISIS in Iraq, and now that the U.S. is also fighting ISIS in Iran, it puts Iran and the U.S. on the same side in the conflict. Strange bedfellows the MidEast quagmire makes. Did you ever imagine the U.S. and Iran would be fighting on the same side in a war?

Very true on the first point. The U.S. and Soviet Union were "allies" during WW2, due to a common enemy. I also think the U.S. shows interest in the Mid East, due to economic (oil) concerns and ignores other equally troubling areas.
