From the same source;
Under the terms of the Starbucks' corporate giving policy, had such a request been made, the coffee giant would have had to say no to it. Such a refusal would have been in keeping with the corporation's donations policy, in that Starbucks chooses to direct its charitable resources within the communities where its stores are located and limits its funding to non-profit organizations. Moreover, it does not consider requests for funding that come from political or religious organizations or which would fund political or religious initiatives or programs. According to the guidelines currently in place, a request for coffee from soldiers serving overseas would be turned down.

given their clientelle, I think their policy is pretty smart

unlike these stupid "entertainers" ranting against Bush, who instantly alienate half of their audience talking about issues way over their heads.

as soon as you go do something (like support the troops) some whacked out leftist extemist from the Blac Bloc is going to come and burn your storefront. Starbucks, like McDonalds, has been attacked already by these fanatics due to politically incorrect coffee "trafficking" by evil and greedy corporate coffee barons

Peet's is worlds better, but given that they are based out of Berkeley I don't expect them to be sending free stuff either.
