Succumbing to the powerful forces arrayed against him, Okinawa Gov. Masahide Ota announced Friday that he is ending his yearlong fight to block the renewal of leases for land used by the U.S. military on his southern Japanese island. "This decision was the most difficult in my six-year career" as governor, a visibly distressed Ota said at a nationally televised news conference. "It was truly painful and severe . . . but I made the decision hoping this result would lead to resolving the issue."
