The letter below has been circulating the Internet and has not been verified by us. However, who the heck would not support our troops! Sounds like a bunch of hypocritical communists at Starbucks. Regardless of the political affiliations and tendencies one might have, it is a core requirement as a US Citizen to maintain and support the safety and sanity of our country. Starbucks must hate our great country to ignore our valuable citizens who fight for our freedom regardless of their own political affiliations or tendencies. Perhaps Starbucks has grown complacent from the vast revenues generated by those same offended citizens of the United States who they would ignore and offend. What are the odds that those offended citizens would act in response to Starbucks’ egregious behavior?
Guess I won’t be drinking Starbucks anymore! ! !
Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because they wanted to let them know how much they liked their coffees and to request that theyÂ 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 troopsÂ 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’tÂ 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! ! !
Also, don’t forget that when the Twin Trade Towers were hit the fireÂ fighters and rescue workers went to Starbucks because it was close by for water forÂ the survivors and workers and Starbucks charged them! ! !
JUST A NOTE TO THIS;Â STARBUCKS HAD STORES ON SEVERAL MILITARY BASES IN THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE NOW BEING REMOVED BECAUSE OF THIS.Â GO GET ‘EM AMERICA . STAND-UP FOR OURSELVES!
