Secret Helsinki: Pact Against Iran Penned at Trump/Putin Confab

A new war is coming, Iran is the immediate target, and Russia is warned to "stand aside", though we all know Russia will be next. Was Putin "owned" at Helsinki?


By Gordon Duff and Nahed al Husaini

VT Istanbul: Confirmed intelligence sources have informed VT of an upcoming destabilization program against Iran, riots and assassinations inside the country and moves against Iran’s allies outside the country. We expect this to come together in one month.

We also know that a version of this program was outlined by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Russian officials during the Helsinki summit. Russia came to the table so focused on supporting Donald Trump – who they see as their boy in Washington because of his long ties to Russian mobsters – that they are missing the “long game.”

Moves are already underway inside Iraq where the US, backed by Saudi cash bribing everyone in Baghdad with a hand out for free cash, and in Baghdad this is everyone, seeks to “cleanse” Iraq of Iranian influence.


There will be no room for Erdogan’s vision of Turkey in the plans drawn out. Another move by Gulanites, followers of the US-based radical cleric wielded by the CIA to “keep a hand” in Turkey, is expected.

Moves by Turkey to secure advanced Russian air defenses are a recognition that defending itself against America and Israel is the key to survival.


The move in Iraq is seen as a game they know well, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States and Israel in their formerly long secret alliance, finally publicly joining hands to dominate the region. Iraq’s Sunni business leaders have become increasingly tied to Tel Aviv through Amman, a process that began in 2003.

Rummy with General Richard Myers (L), the Bush Neocons’ dependable asset at the Pentagon for 9-11-01

It was this relationship that eventually flowered into ISIS in 2014, a Sunni-financed move to offset Shiite majority power in Iraq, or so it was believed, which was secretly backed by the West, Israel and Saudi Arabia. ISIS was “sold” to Iraqi Sunni leaders in late 2013 as “their boys.”

A year later, most who believed that were headless corpses. It will happen again. What ISIS couldn’t accomplish, only because of Iran stepping in against them, betrayal will try again; Iraq is the base of operations against Iran as was intended after the Bush/Blair invasion of 2003.

Sources close to former acting Chairman of America’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, then General Richard Myers, have described initial meetings that planned a series of events that were to befall the region starting with 9/11 and culminating with topping the government in Tehran.

It was General Myers who disappeared on the morning of 9/11, and the same General Myers who had ordered invasion plans for Iraq and then Iran only weeks before. Those plans have resurfaced.

The Summit

While most of the world now believes Russian President Vladimir Putin is running Donald Trump like a hand puppet, there is a real dossier far worse than the one released. For this, we include a short but useful history lesson provided by the Washington Post:

In order to better understand issues behind the Helsinki summit and Vladimir Putin’s strange performance there, VT Managing Editor Ian Greenhalgh outlines what is needed in this Press TV interview:

How it will play out

Russia opened the door with the bend over Putin made to Netanyahu over isolating Hezbollah and Iranian advisers during the latter stages of the war in Syria. With the major fighting in Idlib coming up and the US occupying Syria’s best agricultural land and their oil rich provinces, Putin made a major blunder here.

The US, French and British, backed by Israel and Saudi Arabia, have retrained thousands of ISIS fighters and recruited thousands more, being repackaged as it were as a new “Taliban” to replace ISIS. The Hollywood-scripted theatrics of ISIS, the burnings and beheadings, were a turn-off for many, with unpleasant publicity unavoidable with Israel flying air cover for ISIS and the US arming and even commanding them.

It is easier to simply bribe or assassinate – a new caliphate isn’t necessary. Old tactics work best; but the wild card was Russia, its relationship with Turkey and Iran, and the powerful bloc they formed cooperating in Syria.

Russia had to be shown that it was in its best interests to sell its allies “down the river” – Syria for sure, Iraq, Iran, Turkey – and give up all real power in the region.

The economic blockade of Iran was done to demonstrate to Putin how America could step on the EU, violate treaties and economically crush any enemy.

All the while, Putin has “bought in” on Trump as a malleable dupe. Both, of course, live in an environment where gangster oligarchs operate freely, and their wishes are most often expressed in deep parallel with the most extreme elements in Israel’s Likudist regime.

  1. The Hilary emails leak was a psy op by Israel, the data was harvested by the NSA, passed to unit 8200 in Herzliya, Israel where they filtered through all the tens of thousands of emails to find ones they could ‘spice up’ and then release via Wikileaks, which is another Israeli-run front. All part of the plot to install trump in the White House.

  2. The respectable Sayyeda Nahed al Husaini is very familiar with the Islamic eschatology in which conditions for the Mahdi to reveal himself are identified. [VT editors will remember their article about Iraqis being tortured to reveal the Mehdi’s whereabouts]. If, as is suggested here, Putin is giving the green light on Iran (just as Russia stood by on Iraq & Libya), then it will set in motion the events leading to the emergence of the Mehdi. Who, it is said, will emerge from ancient Khorasan (present day NE Iran, NW Pakistan, Afghanistan & Uzbekistan).

    Interestingly, David Koresh and his people believed it too. Hence he assumed the last named Koresh, which is a lexcial transition from the Arabic Quraish (Meccan tribe).

    • No Mehdi in islam & kuran.
      Russia and US is just negotiating their interests and aiming for good relations.
      Nobody is selling partners or allies.
      Very wrong analysis, much like MSM.

    • Some of the Salafi, Ikhwan & the Khawarij falsely propagate there is no Mehdi in Islam. They mostly come from the Mutahzila school.

      1. Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri reported that the Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: “At the end of the time of my ummah, the Mahdi will appear. Allaah will grant him rain, the earth will bring forth its fruits, he will give a lot of money, cattle will increase and the ummah will become great. He will rule for seven or eight years. (Mustadrak al-Haakim, 4/557-558; he said: this is a hadeeth whose isnaad is saheeh, although it was not reported by al-Bukhaari and Muslim. Al-Dhahabi agreed with him, and al-Albaani said: this is a saheeh sanad, and its men are thiqaat (trustworthy), Silsilat al-ahaadeeth al-saheehah, vol. 2, p. 336, hadeeth 771)

      2. ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: ‘The Mahdi is one of us, a member of my family. Allaah will guide him in a single night.’” (Musnad Ahmad, 2/58, hadeeth 645, edited by Ahmad al-Shaakir, who said: its isnaad is saheeh; Sunan Ibn Maajah, 2/1367. This hadeeth was also classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’ al-Sagheer, 6735). Ibn Katheer said: “This means that Allaah will forgive him, grant him help, inspire him and guide him, when he was not like this before.” (Al-Nihaayah, al-Fitan wa’l-Malaahim, 1/29; edited by Taha Zayni).


  3. Largely right, except that India was never one, no more than Europe ever was. It was held as one only 3 times, each time under foreigners: the Mauryas, who are said to be from the East Iranian origin tribes of the extreme North West; the Mughals, whose origins were the Turkicised Barlas Mongols; and, the British.

  4. i have read 4 stories so far..all different telling me what exactly happened at the summit.


  5. You’ve got it all wrong, Hilary had nothing to do with Libya, that was a CIA black op and she was at the State Dept, she was totally unaware of what was going on until it hit the news. Hilary worse than Trump? Not in this universe, that’s really ludicrous.

  6. It is hardly realistic to claim that most of the world now believes that Putin is running Trump like a hand puppet. Maybe the portion of the world that uses SNL as source of political information. There were so many public claims made by Peskov, Zakharova, Medvedev, Lavrov and Putin over the past few years suggesting that US-Russia ties are at their lowest rating since a very long time ago and even on the brink of military confrontation. Compared to Bush-Putin fishing trips and all buds and roses these are certainly a fairly different times.

  7. Not for the life of me can I see Russia standing back while the Zionist/NeoCon cabal literally walk into Iran and proceed to set up more missile locations aimed at Russia along an incredibly extensive area that joins with Afghanistan to tax Moscow’s defense capabilities – already strained to contain NATO on the western border, to the limit. I don’t buy it, I don’t foresee it or envisage any sell-out of a criminally targeted and independent country. Trump and Putin did not meet in collusion to promote the great Israeli expansion which has already caused untold deaths and unimaginable misery. The idea is irrational and nothing more than a war-mongering illusion by so-called intelligence assets. I wasn’t at the conference but imagine rationally that Trump was told a few home truths by Putin and left to figure a way to disseminate a rosy outcome without disclosing the thorns in his ass.

    • Would Russia intervene if the Zionist controlled US decided the way to defeat Iran is to genocide the people with nuclear weapons, with the probable outcome of Russian intervention being both Russia and the US being destroyed in a nuclear exchange?

      Of course, if the powers that be feel that they can survive a nuclear war in their DUMBs, they might see this as the best way to depopulate the world of “useless eaters”.

    • We had the same question when Syria was threatened with a wholescale onslaught by Western forces and Russia put them on notice that any attack would be met with a swingeing response. The West backed off then and you can be sure when Israel senses a coming, smouldering, post-nuclear, ash-laden, roach pit under their feet they will back off again. Nothing happens in the Middle East but Netanyahu and his click are in it up to their squinted eye-balls and he is where the pin drops and the buck stops. Ultimately, nobody but a crazed megalomaniac would ignore Putin .. and if you are looking for one try the amorphous heap of goons running the US media and the money-grubbing arms suppliers and bankers. DUMB f….ks one all all.

  8. Trump corrects his quote, says misspoke on Russian meddling

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Blistered by bipartisan condemnation of his embrace of a longtime U.S. enemy, President Donald Trump sought Tuesday to “clarify” his public undermining of American intelligence agencies, saying he had misspoken when he said he saw no reason to believe Russia had interfered in the 2016 U.S. election.

      Sea of Azov: The Hot Backwater of New Cold War Written by J.Hawk exclusively for SouthFront

      Kiev in the aftermath of Helsinki Summit

      The Sea of Azov and the Crimea Bridge are merely focal points of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine crisis, which in turn is a component of the broader West-Russia one. Therefore the outermost layer of the Crimea Bridge and Sea of Azov security is Russian diplomacy which seeks to remove threats to its interests and sovereignty before they have to be dealt with military force. Ukraine clearly was on the agenda at Helsinki and, judging by the nervous reactions in Ukraine, it did not go as Kiev would have hoped. The hysterical reactions in the neocon-dominated media to the remarkably non-confrontational joint appearance of Putin and Trump raises the danger of attempts to sabotage the early “green shoots” of US-Russia detente. To date, the preferred theater for staging such provocations has been Syria, but given the emergence of diplomatic consensus among Syria’s neighbors, the nearing end of the civil war, and the effectiveness with which Russia countered the Douma false flag, that country is losing its attractiveness. Therefore the choice of escalation might fall on Ukraine and seas which border it.

  9. We knew the Russians were involved but thought and still do that Israel pushed them into it. Now we go further, thus, you didn’t read the article nor our other coverage.

    You can’t both oppose Israel and then peddle their psy ops as your own. Fail.

  10. Cheers. I’m still new to this TV interview lark, we shall see how ‘on the level’ PressTV is if they keep inviting me back, because regardless of the questions they throw at me, I will always give them awkward answers that don’t fit the conventional narrative as found in the MSM or the equally controlled ‘alternative’ media. What was it Jack Nicholson said in that movie – ‘if you can’t handle the truth….’

  11. Gangster oligarchs operating freely; says it all. We spend all our energies criticizing politicians and forget to look at those pulling the strings. Sadly Putin is a politician; not a gangster oligarch. Even sadder, Trump isn’t even a politician. VT gives us different looks as to our world and how it works. What I’ve come to realize is that the insane criminals running the show are never sated.

  12. Gordon paints a dark picture here. Anyone who has been paying attention has to have made the connection between loss of liberties here at home and, the expansion of US aggression around the world. If you’re like me, under Putin, Russia offered hope. I saw Russia as standing up for the little guy, and Putin as backing down the playground bully. If this has all been a charade we’re lost.

  13. I believe Putin is much smarter than this article would have us believe. He is giving Israel and the fools running the U.S. enough rope to hang themselves with. He will not desert Iran or Syria. After all look at his investment in them and how they all need each other against Satan. Putin is the new good guy on the planet. Hopefully he will destroy the bad guys.

    • We hoped Putin was as you say, but the evidence keeps stacking up to contradict that view, which is a source of great disappointment for us.

    • Have always wondered about Putin. The name itself is said to be non-existent in Tsarist tax rolls. Presumably it was assumed after the Russian Revolution. Stalin means man of steel; no one has an answer to what does Putin mean, not even VT’s Russian readership.
