This thread was partially inspired by the Falklands War thread and partly by the current trend of expanding the definition of ‘Western’ nations (expanse of the UN, spread of capitalism, etc.).
If two NATO nations went to war, what would happen? Seeing that NATO is a mutual defense alliance, it would seem that it would split the union into factions around the combatants.
Would NATO simply ‘excise’ the combatants and go on? Would NATO oust one and back the other? This is sounding like a weird variation on Hindenberg’s alliance system that started WW I.
