WASHINGTON, Jan. 19, 2006 (UPI) -- The White House rejected Osama bin Laden's truce offer Thursday and said there would be no let up in the war against terror.

"The terrorists started this war, and the president has made it clear that we will end it at a time and place of our choosing," spokesman Scott McClellan said.

"We are not going to let up. We are taking the fight to the enemy. We are continuing to pursue them, wherever they are. And we will bring them to justice, and we will win in this war against terrorism." [...]
If Bush can choose the time to end the war, why doesn't he hurry up and end it already?

It's tough talk, sure enough, but it doesn't make any sense.
