Can the war in Afghanistan be won and is AustralIa's involvement worth the price that's being paid?When Al Qaeda attacked the United States mainland in September 2001 the US reaction was swift and brutal. Terrorist bases in Afghanistan were targeted and bombed and an invasion by a coalition of forces, including Australia, followed. In no time at all Al Qaeda fled to Pakistan and the Taliban was overcome. Ten years on the situation looks very different.

For two days, an inflatable dinghy packed full of young African men floats in the middle of the Mediterranean, its occupants unsure if they will live or die. Suddenly, the San Giusto - an Italian naval ship - looms into view, plucks the jubilant men from their sagging rubber boat and they join the 135,000 thousand people rescued at sea by Italy, so far this year. When the San Giusto has collected its capacity of human cargo, they're taken to a southern Italian port, subjected to health tests and passed through a processing centre and, for some, on through the gates to town and onto to a new life in Europe. Italy's Operation Mare Nostrum is starkly different to Australia's Operation Sovereign Borders and it has also has its fair share of critics. In an Australian television first, Foreign Correspondent takes you aboard this high-risk, politically controversial exercise conducted, as you'd expect, with plenty of Italian passion and dedication.

There's a new gold rush in America's west, where decades of marijuana prohibition are coming to an end and Wall Street is moving in. Hundreds of cannabis businesses are aiming to make it an industry to rival beer. With predictions sales and profits will grow by 64 per cent in the next year, thousands of new businesses are entering the market. But there is a growing opposition of voices warning that a new Big Tobacco is being created. One of them is Patrick Kennedy, former Congressman and son of Ted, nephew of JFK, a man who has had his own struggle with addictions. But Cannabis Inc. is a slick operation wooing politicians with the prospect of a billion dollar industry they can tax.

What happens when a vacuum-sealed, strictly-controlled nation loosens up, opens its doors and ushers in aggressive international businesses, hungry global developers and hoards of curious tourists? Can Myanmar's sensitive culture, fragile and beautiful heritage and infant democracy cope with this strange, invasive and transformative surge? It's too early to tell. But it turns out some enterprising locals aren't just standing by waiting for change. They're taking their opportunities now and they include a power-pop princess with world charts in her sights and a former US based Google exec who's returned home to build a business. Myanmar's even letting in nosey reporters so we sent our own Sally Sara to witness this historic collision of past, present and future.
