Agreed. I like the report, too, but USIP's framing language is jarring. Almost makes it seem like the US should be competing to be first into these fragile states so that...Russia and China don't get there (and get bogged down) first. Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense

Can confirm this wasn't the report's intent. Concern is more that strategic competition in Task Force's mandate area is worsening the threat from AQ / IS affiliated groups, and to adopt a strategy that aims to prevent conflict (and avoid getting bogged down) in the first place.
