At the time, I got LMT also and say RTN made tomahawks & stuff. Figuring we were pretty close to further depleting our stores of the cruise missiles, I went ahead and got a couple.

Buying stock in MO does not give any money to any tobacco company. You merely buy a piece of the company from another shareholder. As an American your sentiment is misguided. You, via Uncle Sam, are already profiting handsomely from tobacco sales. Uncle Sam is the senior partner in the deal making 3-4 times what MO makes on a pack of cigarettes.
