    No sure if your statement is sarcastic:) It reads like it? But yes it would be a good precedent - invade and lose your foreign assets.

      For it to be a precedent, it would have to be applied consistently. But it isn’t; you don’t see Isreal having its assets frozen, or Britain, or France, or the USA. Which means he only precedent you see is the West stealing financial assets from its enemies, regardless of who the aggressor is.

        Hey, when the funds are stored in Russian banks, you are certainly welcome to freeze them all you want. But for some reason they typically aren’t. Huh, I wonder why?

      I absolutely refuse to use the /s tag. I tend to try to lay it on pretty thick, because specifying that you’re being sarcastic tends to ruin the comedic emphasis the sarcasm is intended to provide.
