my intro paragraph is here no change with,
I suggest rewording: Saudi Arabia and Iran have been long time regional rivals in the Middle East, but their tensions have increased recently. Both have powerful allies, as well as enemies, in the region. In this paper, I will explore who the allies are for both country and what benefits they receive from Saudi Arabia and Iran. I will focus on the U.S.’s relationship with Saudi Arabia and Russia’s relationship with Iran. I will focus on the benefits and drawbacks of each relationship, arguing that the resources the U.S. going from Saudi Arabia are vital to U.S. interest. Russia’s alliance with Iran is attributed to both countries’ desire to limit western influence in the Middle East. These different motivations explain why all of these countries have aligned the way they have.
(please notice that my intro to paragraph is provided at the top. just continue writing the rest.)
I need you to compare& contrast Saudi Arabia with Iran, who are their allies (Saudi&Iran). What are the benefits for Russia from Iran and what are the benefits for U.S.A from Saudi Arabia.

im an international student so do not write high vocabulary.
Step 1: There are two ways to approach this project: deductive or inductive. You can either start with an interesting question (deductive) or start with cases you want to research (inductive).
If you want to practice deductive reasoning, you should determine a question you want to answer/hypothesis you want to test. The question/hypothesis must be focused on government structures or foundations of political life, (like checks and balances, legislature, executive, judiciary, civil liberties, etc.). After you have your question/hypothesis, choose two of the countries below (any countries not on the list must be approved by Prof. Butler) that you think can help you answer your question/test your hypothesis.
If you want to practice inductive reasoning, you should select two of the countries below (any countries not on the list must be approved by Prof. Butler). Your task will be to thoroughly research both countries and develop a hypothesis on either their structures of government or foundations of political life (like checks and balances, legislature, executive, judiciary, civil liberties, etc.).
Step 2: After researching both countries with regard to the aspect you choose, it’s time to form an argument as to why the countries are similar or different. For example, if you choose to explore the different civil liberties guarantees in China and Canada, you have to develop an argument as to why the two countries diverge on civil liberties. What about the countries’ history, political institutions, etc. have created this divergence on civil liberties?
Keep in mind
- It is essential that, in your intro paragraph, there is a clear thesis statement. Successfully establishing your thesis in the introduction makes it clear that the rest of your paper will be providing evidence and arguing in support of your position of whether this is a ‘winning’ or ‘losing’ issue.
- Evidence should be from credible sources (not Wikipedia, see “Why isn’t Wikipedia a reputable source? (Links to an external site.)“) and should include historical facts, reference to the countries’ political systems and traditions, and statistics.
Intro Paragraph with Thesis Statement Requirements:
- Six sentences (minimum) – ten sentences (maximum)
- Good opening sentence(s)/hook
- Clear thesis
- You must do preliminary research/searching for credible sources in order to satisfy the thesis/road map requirements. Do not write a thesis that is based solely on memory and/or opinion.
- Typically, introduction paragraphs do not need citations. Thus, unless you mention a fact that may be disputed or statistic, you do not need to include citations for this introduction paragraph assignment.
- Create a well-developed argument as to why two countries’ have similar/different political institutions
- Complete a comparative analysis implementing the research tools learned throughout the semester
