Starbucks

I do not know if this is true or not, but it was sent to me by an American Marine friend... If it is true then I think the firm should be boycotted.

Guess I will not be drinking Starbucks any more!
Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because the wanted to
let them know how much they liked their coffees and to request that they
send some of it to the troops there. Starbucks replied, telling the Marines
thank you for their support of their business, but that Starbucks does not
support the war, nor anyone in it, and that they would not send the troops
their brand of coffee.

So as not to offend Starbucks, maybe we should not support them by buying
any of their products! I feel we should get this out in the open. I know
this war might not be very popular with some folks, but that doesn't mean we
don't support the boys on the ground fighting street-to-street and
house-to-house. If you feel the same as I do then pass this along, or you
can discard it and no one will never know.

Thanks very much for your support. I know you'll all be there again when I
deploy once more.

That's that one resolved then!

as these things usually are.

Any round-robin email that contains the sentence "Please don't delete this, pass it on to all your friends", or words to that effect is guaranteed to be a hoax - in this case a malicious one - and should be binned on receipt.
