Analyzing Theory and Grand Strategy of the article in the link below

https://www.jstor.org/stable/2009777?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

Complete the following instructions.

In a single opening paragraph, briefly summarize the author’s argument. The short abstract provided at the beginning of each article already does this, but do not copy and paste it, since it must flow with the overall tenor of your own style and argument.

In the next section of the essay, offer a concise defense of the argument. Why is it at least plausible? There is always something rationally defensible about a peer-reviewed journal article on American Foreign Policy.

For the remainder of your response, offer a critique of the article. What are the limits, problems, or gaps in the author’s argument? There are limits, problems, or gaps in every argument. You do not have to have answers to the problems you identify, but you must be able to at least develop questions about the claims made by the author.

Write the 3–5-page research-based paper in current Turabian format. Each essay must include 5–7 citations in addition to the course texts and the Bible.

Please use the references below for one of your references:
Textbook: Rising Threats, Enduring Challenges: Readings in U.S. Foreign Policy by Andrew Price-Smith

Other guidelines:

All references to the article itself only require a page number in parentheses referencing the source. If you cite a page number in parentheses (e.g., 64) next to a sentence within the body of the essay, it will imply that you are referencing page 64 of the source.
Any and all quotations must be in the footnotes, not the body of the text.
As part of your analysis, you are welcome to include Christian perspectives or opinions, but these must be integrated in a coherent manner that fits the overall tenor of your analysis.
