I would suggest that if you're going to use an historical quote from a good, reliable source, and not from the internet.
Further, this does not represent Napoleon beginning a war as he was not head of state at the time. He attacked Egypt with the permission of the Directory and he couldn't have gone without that.
So, your points in this subject are irrelevant to the major topic.
Could it be that you're merely attempting to continue the 'demonization' of Napoleon by reaching for evidence that does not support either subject?
