US power is inevitably on the way and they say China is the new rising power the unipolar moment when the US appeared the sole dominant player on the world stage in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union is over. for many who follow this line of argument the arrival of Donald Trump in the White House was proof positive of that case he is this made many of America's friends disrupted alliances the times has appeared will comfortable with their sports the house with friendly democratic governments. there's no doubt that under president trump's watch US foreign policy has had few clear successes beyond the old high profile stage managed encounter as in his two meetings with the north Korean leader Kim Jong un on the problematic relationships with Russia and Ukraine seem inextricably bound up with president trump's domestic concerns and maybe even ultimately his political survival meanwhile China is parading its military might and demonstrating its confidence in the future. it would be a mistake to simply conflate America's world image under Mr trump and the wider issue of US decline. president trump is both a symptom and of course of the uncertainties that have dogged Washington's global future declined did not begin on his watch. administrations did no better in extricating the US from Afghanistan well curbing north Korea's nuclear ambitions many may disagree with how he is going about it but even the more assertive approach with Beijing was something that a wide array of experts believe was necessary in some form or another. in short the world is changing the economic underpinnings of power shifting we are as a transitional point in technological development what all this means that no single country will dominate in the way the US did through the Cold War and especially after the collapse of Soviet communism. however the US still retains exclude me dynamism it retains reserves of soft power the Beijing could only dream of. it also remains a formidable albeit challenged Miller tree actor. Russia may have proved far more capable in achieving its strategic goals during its intervention in Syria the US and its allies did in either Afghanistan or Iraq but what does this really prove rusher is in many ways a declining country with middle ranking economic muscle albeit well armed with nuclear weapons. the US post trump whenever that may be will not revert to the way things were but neither would it retreat to the sidelines but less dominant power needs to be at the center of a web of relationships and that is where president trump according to his critics has done the most damage he's walked away from international agreements he shows little interest in arms control treaties or in multinational board is like the U.

"Speaking from the White House in the last hour. President Trump has announced small business healthcare changes. He also says the administration is working to bring down drug prices. Iran has described you as accurate Asians that it was responsible for attacks onto oil tankers as unfounded, you have to look at this and say is this is the American say an Iranian vessel. Is it somebody else pretending to be the Iranians we just at the moment? No, but I think it is the first important part of the case against Iran. I think many countries will want to see more evidence, though want to see forensic information from the two vessels attacks. They'll want to see tracks from the alleged Iranian ships in the area, and so on. But the danger, of course, is that the Americans decide to retaliate and that indeed could lead to a serious kind of tit for tat struggle. BBC.

So I think St Louis woods, overly emotional, I haven't problem Damien with the would emergency. We are going to be having old hands at the pumps cutting emissions for the next fifty years is going to be difficult in my view to sustain the would emergency in those circumstances. More of that engaging debate in about forty five minutes. I two oil tankers have been damaged in suspected attacks in the Gulf of Oman. A fire broke out, giving off lots of black smoke after an explosion on board at least one ship crew members have been taken off both in a region of heightened tensions since president. Trump tightened oil sanctions on Iran, the temptation to jump to conclusions is huge. So we'll try not to let's talk to our defense correspondent, Jonathan Mockus. Tell us what, you know, Jonathan about what happened. Okay. What at this stage we have two vessels, which appear to have been attacked explosions on board, as I as you say, a huge pool of smoke from amidships in one of the vessels. They appear to be vessels, that were actually on the move in the Gulf of Oman. That's the wool to that links. The Arabian Sea with the crucially important and strategic straits of whole news. The crews of both vessels would take off the crew of one of them, the cuckoo courageous Japanese vessel would take off by a toggle then transferred to a US warship, which responded to that emergency cools. Now, the story of this particular vessel is interesting because it's owners say that there were two explosions. They believe to a tax. They believe over the course of some three hours that was an initial explosion, which caused damage in the engine room. The fi there was was put onto control taking them to control, and then subsequently. Some hours later, a second explosion occurred at which point, they abandoned the vessel, why some already pointing the finger at Iran will it's clear that this comes at a time of heightened tensions between the US and its allies on the one hand in Iran on the other roughly a month ago. Full vessels, tankers, with damaged by limpet mines small minds that were affixed to the outside of the stationary vessels. Now the Americans and the Saudis insists that it was the Iranians who behind this. The Americans say they have tracks of Iranian revolution regard, call boats entering that area, and leaving again possibly dropping the frogman, who may have fitted the touch the minds onto the vessels. So the tensions are very high. Now the Iranians for their part insists that it's nothing to do with them. Iran has been saying this morning. It's got no connection with these incidents today, arguing that somebody is trying. To destabilise relations between Iran and the international community. Now, we'll broadly this is causing huge concern. This is vitally, strategic waterway, particularly oil supplies going from the Gulf towards East Asia, the Asia Pacific about a quarter of global oil flows through this waterway. So it is important government, like the French the British very concerned, the French urging restraint urging attempts to de-escalate but to crucial questions now have to be onset. What actually caused the damage what type of weapon or explosive if indeed that is what caused the damage. So what did it then? Of course, the logical question following from that who did it. Remember the Americans have a huge amount of naval assets in the region, warships, submarines maritime patrol aircraft. And so on one imagine, for example, if it were to be a hostile submarine. For example, this is just conjecture. At the moment that might have launched something at one of these ships. The Americans should have a pretty good idea of what naval activity that was in the region. And do you think it's beyond the bounds of possibility that this could have been a so called black ops operation by one of Iran's, foes, in order to frame them and put the blame on that? Look, we're heavily into the field of conjecture and speculation here. But of course that is a possibility. I mean, if you say has the Saudi regime in the past, for example, done very irresponsible things things that most of gut, most of the governors who are friendly with Saudi Arabia, believe, we're responsible. I'm referring here to the merger of prominent journalist, then of course that's true. But look, we just don't know as yet. And I think the terrible danger here is that most experts don't think that Iran, all the United States, actually want to have a military conflict with each other. The danger is that one or other side may do something. And perhaps in this particular. Scenario. We're looking in the direction of Iran, but others as well. We'll they push the envelope just that bit to fall skit not get away with something they think they can get away with that could lead to a confrontation by accident. If you like rather than by design, there is one tangible repercussion already isn't on oil prices. There is indeed. An as I say this is a crucial transit route four oil mean the streets of whole news account for about thirty percent of the global seaborne transits of oil, it's important less. So, of course, if the United States which now has shale oil and its own, but one still can't overestimate the significance of this route crucially for the key economists in the N East Asia. So it is very important. Prices have gone up in Yukos, no doubt shipping. Insurance rates might go up, and so on, remember, these are going up from prices, which are much lower than perhaps. They have been in the past, but it is worrying, it's worrying on economic grounds and crucially. It's worrying on geostrategic grounds as well. Jonathan Marcus many things.
