TR Laureate Question

Was the TR Ruso-Japanese laureate some predecessor of the Axis limitrophes of Eurasia? Because I sense that the later German eastward activities into the Russia between those boundary states were against some premise which later became known as containment. Yet, as I usually believe: the activities of nations are rarely intended to be intentionally about war; despite the pertaining causal expansion of carboniferous fuels mechanization during the 20th century: It appears that the finite biocarbon energy age’s accomplishment of societal premise application will be to have mapped and built the infrastructures of the northern hemisphere continents. Habitable and productive lands have become the construct locales of humanity as resource poor wasteland wildernesses await some future epoch with intentions beyond the capacities and purposes of human need.
