About NATO

After the destruction caused due to the Second World War, the nations of Europe, in rubble, struggled to rebuild their economies and ensure their security. They required a massive influx of aid to help the war-torn landscapes re-establish industries and produce food, and also assurances against a resurgent Germany or incursions from the Soviet Union. With possibilities of hindrances to the Marshall Plan (for the economic reintegration of Europe by USA) by the Soviet Communists , the Truman Doctrine ( assertion of the United States providing economic and military aid to both countries, as well as to any other nation struggling against an attempt at subjugation) came into picture. The Truman Administration considered the possibility of forming a European-American alliance that would commit the United States to bolstering the security of western Europe. This led to the Brussels treaty in 1948 ,where the western Europe would be dealing with the concept of collective defense.
It was further proposed to seek a security treaty with western Europe that would adhere to the United Nations charter but exist outside of the Security Council where the Soviet Union held veto power. The Vandenburg Resolution passed, and negotiations led to the North Atlantic Treaty in 1949, thus including further the nations of the North Atlantic as well into the collective defense strategy.
Thus ,as per NATO ideology, an attack against one member nation is an attack against all its member nations.
