A New Version of an Old Fable
"The part played by Japan in the War was somewhat obscure to us until the collapse of Russia and her entanglement in a net of intrigue place her at the mercy of corrupt propagandists like Lenin and Trotsky. Allied detachments at Vladivostok were landed with a view to keeping open the Trans-Siberian line of communication into Russia, but the Allies were a little late, the Bolsheviks been in possession of many vital strategic points. The line guarded by the Japanese was 4000 miles long. Japan was enabled to render service to the Allied cause by sending troops into Siberian Russia, and thus reliving the man-power crisis which then made the difficulty of staying the Bolshevik advance almost insurmountable. Japan was on familiar ground: once she had goaded the Russian bear into panic, now she reappeared as the deliverer from internecine war and ruinous intrigue."
