Baltics and Sweden

The Russians attacked Ukraine and the West did essentially nothing about it.  Then they sent troops to Syria, and again the West did essentially nothing about it.  Now the Russians have been stepping up provocations in the Baltic States and Sweden. 

What will happen if the Russians invade Sweden?  Sweden is not a member of NATO.  So what will NATO do if Sweden is attacked?  What if Russia attacks Sweden and only nibbles off a bit that Russia claims always belonged to Russia; like they did with Ukraine?

The Baltic States are part of NATO so by treaty the other NATO members are pledged to their defense, but what if they cease to exist after only a day?  Will NATO attack and drive Russia out?  The US has had a mixed to poor track record in standing by our allies in the last decade; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
