I received this message from a friend. Is this letter true?


Their coffee is tasting more and more bitter.....


Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because
they wanted to let them
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

So as not to offend Starbucks, maybe we should not
support them by buying
any of their products! As a war vet writing to
fellow patriots, 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 for what they and I believe is right.

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.

I don't know, but It's gonna be difficult to not buy their products... cause at the end of this year Starbucks will open it's first coffee shop here in Aguascalientes, and I have to try them... :D
