"Where there's a will to condemn, evidence will follow." Hillary Clinton.

She attributed the above to Chinese proverb in her book "What Happened" without quote, I cannot find any such Chinese proverb. She was making things up.

The closest one is 欲加之罪,何患无辞 which means "Willing to condemn, no worry for lack of words(accusations)."

As a lawyer and an American elite of American elites, she is conflating accusations and evidence or she does not care about accusation and evidence regarding China. Why?

Anyway, her words capture the mood of many Western writers regarding China. One can readily find such examples from publications such as Asian Times. Some of its articles twisted everything China did or trying to do.

Sooner or later, China's BRI would be described as "China's Silk Road Debt Trap", "China's Silk Road Conspiracy."

The Road Not Taken
BY ROBERT FROST

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

With courage and conviction, Xi Jinpeng layed down his plans for BRI.
The world rushed in to join the project except for Uncle Sam.
China is transforming the world for trade and commerce for all mankind
Except for the USA!!!
