No, the war of 1812 was

No, the war of 1812 was self-defense. The British Empire fired the first shots in 1806 and 1807 not to mention 400 ships hijacked and 8000 seamen kidnapped. As for York, the British killed the US commander Zebulon Pike in an "accident", then the Canadians and troops went berserk, until other US officers could restore order.
