Oliver North's Column: Incendiary Iran

Retired Marine Lt Colonel Oliver North looks at the threat from Iran in his latest column.

MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. -- Our Fox News crew is here wrapping up our 100th "War Stories" documentary -- with some of the "stars" of previous episodes. Though most of the Marines here are recent veterans of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, their present focus is on the next trouble spots. Thanks to inept national security planning in Washington, there are more vulnerabilities today than there were just three years ago. At the top of the list: Iran.

Few of the young Marines we meet here are old enough to remember what happened to the U.S. Embassy in Tehran 32 years ago this month. But the "old guys" do. That's why senior officers and noncommissioned officers here had a déjà vu moment when images of Iranian "students" sacking the British Embassy in Tehran flashed around the world this week.
