After World War 1, much of Europe became divided into a number of small nations. By 1930 Russia had conquered Belorussia, Ukraine, and the nations of the Caucus. With World War 2, Germany and Russia conquered many of the rest. Following World War 2, it look as if Russia wanted to conquer the world. Russia had an extremely powerful army and no one nation in Europe could stand up to Russia. The nations of Europe needed to band together to keep Russia at bay. As a result they formed the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. If Russia attacked one nation, the rest would come to its defense. They got the United States to join. Since the United States had the only army large enough to oppose Russia, it became the senior partner. If Russia attacked, it would take the lead and the other nations would follow its command. (At the time England was the only other possibility. But since it was in Europe, jealousy made the United States the better choice.) When Gorbachev became the leader of Russia, the need for a mutual defense force against Russian aggression greatly lessened but Nato still existed.Today Nato still exists to provide for the common defense. It is having difficulty defining the common enemy.
