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.

PLEASE DON'T DELETE THIS.. ALLOW IT TO BE PASSED TO ALL IN MEMORY OF ALL THE TROOPS WHO HAVE DIED SO THAT WE MAY HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE TO SUPPORT THEM OR NOT!!!
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.
