However, the second clinching factor came in January 1949 when the Italian government made a direct appeal for membership in the North Atlantic Treaty. There were rumours at the time that the Italian request, made to the US State Department, was the result of US encouragement, and possibly a ‘put-up job’ by Washington to force the Europeans into accepting Italian membership. Certainly, the Italian request dramatically changed the political picture: the British Foreign Office noted that ‘we shall probably have to acquiesce.
The reason for this was the concurrent negotiations for a Scandinavian Defence Union (SDU), a sort of Nordic Brussels Pact. 48 For the Scandinavian states, as for Europe as a whole, the emerging bipolar antagonism generated questions of alignment and alliance: whether to belong, as Kennan put it. Alignment with the Soviet Union on the Finnish model was never an option; the real choice was between four alternatives. These were a non-aligned SDU, a Westaligned SDU backed in some form by the Western states, the North Atlantic Treaty (NAT), or unilateral isolated neutrality.
In short, graduated membership meant either allied guarantees without member commitments, or member commitments without allied guarantees. As such it was, despite its advantages, an inherently flawed idea. By autumn 1948, two factors emerged which had decisive effect on the membership issue.

As such, it had its own distinctive membership criteria: the treaty had to be given practical meaning by the inclusion of the stepping-stone states.
