IMO D.

C is not possible because nowhere it is mentioned that
If Perrys faction wins, the nation will not suffer militarily. or If Tuckers faction wins, the nation will not suffer economically.

I have seen questions like

if A then B

=> A->B
Not B ->Not A ie, contrapositive type. I think the question you have posted also comes under the same catogery.
Lets prepare for the worst ;)

May be..
good question..

Straight D.
B is out -->
similar logic.. X is true --> Y is true
Y not true -- X is not true ( this is not alwasy correct.. this not certain)
D is the best.
