    Amid talks about arms cuts and arms sales, some European countries are taking a more minimalist approach to defense. The armed forces of Estonia, for example, have had to call on their neighbors in Latvia to borrow ONE tank... because they didn't have any. But it's not planning to build a one-tank army. The Russian-made T-55 vehicle will only be used once, in a military exercise. Ironically, ten years ago Poland offered five tanks of the same model to Estonia FOR FREE, an offer which the country refused, saying Russian tanks did not comply to NATO standards.
