No good doctor treating the acutely injured in the theatre of war, would ask them about their political, civilian or military affiliation unless that doctor chooses to discriminate between his patients. If Dr. Gilbert had the time to discuss his acutely ill patients' civilian or military affiliation, then I would presume that he is either an incompetent physician for which there is no evidence or more likely, he never discussed this matter with his injured patient. he would not have the time. His statement that 90% of his patients were civilians is therefore suspect as to its' accuracy. I am not a military doctor but I have treated civilian and prisoner patients for 31 years. I have never asked the prisoners what crime they committed. I am required by my profession's ethics to treat all the sick, not only those with whom I agree politically or whose religious background I favour or what crime they may or may not have committed.
