    The rich European states don't need NATO, and would most likely be better off without it.
    For the new, poorer Europeans, NATO is critical. From Napoleon over the German Kaiser to Hitler, western European countries tried to conquer eastwards.
    Sure eastern Europeans currently fear Russia, but they would not be happy, if their only protection from Russia would be other powers, that have tried to impose their will on them before.

    You see, there are really split interests in Europe along the lines, loyality is spread in the current conflict.
