    Hey Oversimplified, we know that your recent videos from the American Civil War up to this were pretty heavy on you as you took soo much time creating them, and we appreciate this. I want to suggest to make it easy for your next video, how about making another Mini-War video? Just in case you're feeling too tired.

    If Napoleon wanted to invade Russia, he could have finished the war with Spain, and maybe could have invaded the Ottoman Empire with his largest army.

      He may be practically dementia ridden, but as long as Biden does not usurp power and become a military dictator like Napoleon, make laws to reinstate slavery of blacks like Napoleon, make laws to deny women's rights like Napoleon, force the bulk of his country's youth into military service without an option like Napoleon, engage in foolish invasions like Napoleon, rush to war like Napoleon, backstab allies like Napoleon, end in total defeat like Napoleon, leave his country occupied by enemy forces like Napoleon, have his generals walk out on him like Napoleon, sell vast chunks of territory for fractions of a penny on the dollar the way Napoleon sold the Louisiana Territory, have enemy forces capture his capital city like Napoleon, forced into exile like Napoleon, leave his once powerful army in shambles like Napoleon, forcing his country to radically change governments like Napoleon, lose his country territory like Napoleon lost France territory gained in the French Revolution, have his country pay massive war reparations like Napoleon, all at the cost of a generation of his young countrymen killed in wars like Napoleon, and die a prisoner of war in a remote island like Napoleon, he would have done a better job than Napoleon. Because despite the positive narrative history and this video portrays, Napoleon was actually a reckless, incompetent, cruel, manipulative, warmongering military dictator and abuser of power who mass-murdered the French youth, who was just awful for France. There is a reason he ended in total defeat and died a prisoner on a remote island. There is a reason that even the French were actually cheering for a foreign enemy army marching down the streets of Paris since they hoped it would be the end of Napoleon. The facts show Napoleon destroyed millions of lives as military dictator, reinstated slavery of blacks, reckless in war that destroyed his own army, the most powerful army in the world, lost territory for France, and totally self-serving. It is actually possible for the dementia ridden Biden to be a better leader than Napoleon.

    The British only had deep pockets due to the Indian colony. If we Indians had driven away the british (and we could have. We were the richest country with hundreds of kings back then), all of Europe would be under Napolean and India would be the modern day America without the gun reforms XD
