Calling it a global "moment of testing," President Barack Obama appealed to Europeans on Wednesday to recommit to the war-won ideals of freedom and human dignity, declaring that people voicing those values will ultimately triumph in Ukraine. Obama came to Europe intent on shoring up commitments from allies, but also to make a larger point about European security a quarter-century after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Obama said,"We must never forget that we are heirs to a struggle for freedom,"adding that the Ukraine crisis has neither easy answers nor a military solution.
