That is true, though on the other side of the spectrum, invading Egypt, as much a strategic benefit it would be, would still be harder because of its proximity to the Ottoman heartland. While later down the road, taking Egypt would be a necessity for geostrategic purposes. I feel right now and why I keep saying no to Napoleon doing it, is because the focus for the remainder of the Corsican's reign should be spent purely on consolidating France's gains and propping up his puppet regimes. I see no reason for Spain or Naples to get involved in adventures in Algeria, and I feel that would be an interesting take on the idea, but not France.I think invading Algeria would be a massive diversion of resources (OTL Algerians resisted French colonization every time) without as much strategic benefit as invading Egypt would provide. Furthermore, Napoleon would need the army at home to surpress rebels in the European countries France puppeted. Furthermore, unlike OTL there is nobody to stop this strengthened France from invading Egypt.
