WASHINGTON (AP) _ President Bush vowed on Saturday that U.S. troops will hunt down terrorists and ``smoke them out of their holes″ in a long, unrelenting war. He said prime suspect Osama bin Laden will not be able to hide from America’s forces.

For the first time, he warned Americans they will have to sacrifice.

``I will not settle for a token act. Our response must be sweeping, sustained and effective,″ the president said in his weekly radio address. ``We have much to do and much to ask of the American people.

``You will be asked for your patience, for the conflict will not be short. You will be asked for resolve, because the conflict will not be easy. You will be asked for your strength because the course to victory may be long,″ he said.
