David Nott may be a brilliant trauma surgeon but he is no hero of mine. He has been a strong advocate for ‘humanitarian intervention’ in Syria and worked directly and indirectly with factions allied to Al Qaida in Syria supported by the British government. It is of course great that such an eminent surgeon should be concerned about refugees and about treatment of victims in war zones, but a completely different thing to be a strong advocate for military intervention.
Here is what David Nott said in August 2016
The sticking point is whether Assad stays or goes. He has to go. The refugees who have left the country will not return unless he has gone. There is no alternative.
The British government has a new prime minister who is as steely as Sir John Major, who created a no-fly zone when the Kurds were being attacked by Saddam Hussein with chemical weapons. Theresa May must show some leadership. The first thing that must happen is to demand a no-fly zone for Syrian helicopters to stop them dropping their barrel bombs. The international community must get behind her and force this action.
Later on reports came in that the photo of Omran, the boy with the dusty face used by David Nott as a heart tugging plea, was faked by the White Helmets and that the family in fact supported the legitimate Syrian Government and not the fake democratic opposition David Nott was shilling for.
