"War with Iran is the mother of all wars," Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday in a speech broadcast live on state TV, warning once again that shipping might not be safe in the Strait of Hormuz oil waterway. Matthew RJ Brodsky joins a panel on "Panorama" on Al-Arabiya to discuss what's behind his words and what one can expect in terms of action. Brodsky makes the case for the Trump administration fully withdrawing from the nuclear deal with Iran, revoking all waivers, and invoking the snapback mechanism at the UN Security Council.
