Summary/Abstract: Early April discreet raising of the issue of the military-security position of Serbia (after Croatia and Albania became full members of NATO), seems to have triggered off a major alarm among the influential members of the conservative block. Urging of few politicians, analysts and commentators that Serbia should re-assess all aspects and angles of its controversial military neutrality (Declaration of Serb Parliament adopted in December 2007 during the tenure of Prime Minister Vojislav Koštunice) from the standpoint of regional milieu and its own European future, was interpreted as the start of the campaign for Serbia's accession to NATO.2 And the motive for the backlash against that unproven intiative, was the announced participation of the two Serb officers in the NATO-manouvres in Georgia, in May-June period.
