1. I don't see that happening.

Even the GOPers in the Senate have always supported NATO.

3. Give them the right incentive...

...and the majority of the GOP Senators would sell their own children, and you might get a few Democrats, too!!!

2. Obviously it would not pass.

Many (all? ) republicans are proponents of NATO. Mc Cain for example would never go for it

4. Pence went over there and reiterated our continued alliance with NATO.

Sen. McCain went along for good measure to make sure the plebe didnt f*%k it up. We are not moving away from NATO.

7. It's a treaty. It requires a 2/3 vote in the Senate.
