Why Steve Roberts died
Steve Roberts was killed at the start of the war against Iraq. He died because he didn't have the correct body armour and that came about because although the Minstry of Defence knew about the shortages six months earlier, to order new supplies would have made it plain that the aggression was pre-planned.

It is unlikely that Iraqi Intelligence was monitoring the situation, or could have done anything with the news if it had. A more likely explanation is that the anti-war feeling in the UK would have grown had the news leaked out.

So, to keep in with their American masters, the British government sent soldiers off to a war without the correct equipment.
