A nation with out a standing army is only possible in places like Europe, where their neighbors will respect their boundaries. If a neighbor doesn't respect the boundary, there's nothing to really stop that nation from coming in and taking over.

Actually, the European continent isn't immune that that sort of aggression at all as this footage aptly demonstrates.

 Hhmm.. yes. During the Cold war. Which no longer exists. I am mainly speaking about the EU part of Europe in which some of the internal nations that do not border the outskirts can and do exist without any real need for large standing armies.
