  Inside the Japanese Empire  
  Colonel Itagaki Seishiro, Chief of the Intelligence Section of the Kwantung Army, wrote: "Manchuria is, of course, important from the point of view of Japanese capitalism. From the standpoint of the Proletariat, which finds it necessary to demand the equalization of national wealth, no fundamental solution can be found within the boundaries of naturally poor Japan that will ensure a livelihood for the people at large." Itagaki and his contemporary Lt. Colonel Ishihara Kanji believed that Manchuria would become a haven for democracy, socialism, and serve as a buffer against the Soviet Union. Itagaki Ishihara were involved in many of the Japanese plots in China in the early 1930s.
