Putin is obsessed with power and destruction. He is destroying his own country alongside Ukraine. It's happening in real time. If he can't see this or at least care about it, nothing will stop him short of a bounty that yields results.Short term pin prick for these super rich oligarchs. However if they come to believe they will never be allowed out into the real world to enjoy their wealth it may start having some blowback on Putin.
Fair point about them not being American and not being entitled to the same rights as our citizens from a legal standpoint.Oligarchs are the reason why Putin is in power. They are the ones who wield the real power in that country.
This is not an "American" issue.
I didn't miss your point. You have deemed them responsible for the war without any proof. Because you believe they are responsible other governments are entitled to seize their assets. I am uncomfortable doing that without the benefit of a trial. For all we know they may be trying to talk him into walking it back. Whatever they are doing, they are not invading another country. Putin is doing that. We are acting like they are doing it too. It's not their military.It's not even about that. You totally missed the point.
