Which is 'in the world's interest'?

"Money trumps peace, sometimes. In other words, commercial interests are very powerful interests throughout the world. And part of the issue in convincing people to put sanctions on a specific country is to convince them that it's in the world's interest that they forgo their own financial interest."
President George W. Bush Feb. 14, 2007
In other words, when The Chief wants to
go kick some ass in some far off land, he has
trouble convincing the moneyed interests.

Who will win is hard to say.
