I went with B.

"both against Amer & Irish " vs. "against both Amer & Irish" is the main difference between the 2.

The latter has the proper placement of "both"

I did not like any options, but B is better than others.

Choose B.

Both against is wrong, should be again both American and Irish.

"To protect" and "in order to protect" are similar meaning, but the use of "both" in A is wrong.
I picked B. What is the OA?.
