International Concern Mounts Over Iraq

As sectarian tensions grow in Iraq, there's an international stalemate over what can be done to help. We explore whether the American people have the stomach for the financial and human cost of intervention.

As political tensions rise between China and Japan, we visit a Japanese island torn between fending off the Chinese military, and making money from big-spending Chinese tourists. Plus we report from eastern China on how politics is affecting people's purchases there.
