Starbucks Coffee: Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because they 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
in 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.

Being in a war does not entitle someone to scam off of society (based on their supposed heroism).

So as not to offend Starbucks, 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.

They're "corporate."

Support local coffee shops!

Indeed. Insofar as multinational corporations go, I think they are pretty good. I think they just make an easy target because of their visibility. it's easy for some "anarchist" teen or young adult to lob a brick into a Starbucks. Not so easy to trash the offices of say, Haliburton or Chevron where the response might be a severe beating by security personell.

Starbucks, who is expanding throughout the world like wild fire is right to protect its marketshare by not antagonizing customers who are against the war in Iraq.
Walmart on the other hand is just plain evil.
