Europe does not see Russia as an aggressor in this crisis, but if USA pursues its goal of bringing Georgia and Ukraine into NATO, there are only three options:
If Europe digs in its heals and refuses, on the grounds that it does not need Russia as an enemy, then either the United States drops its demands, or NATO breaks up. The third and perhaps likeliest alternative is that Europe agrees to let the two former Soviet republics join, but with unspoken reservation that they will never go to war with Russia. That would be a less dramatic end for NATO, but it would be an end. A tow-tier alliance is not alliance.
