Obama, mocked as a "Prankster", has the germ of a good idea

The press and the Russians have mocked Obama for coming up with sanctions that might injure a dozen rich Russians and Ukrainians.   It does however echo the personalized strategy Israel developed to manage terrorism by taking down the command structure one kill at a time.  I think it likely that if a few hundred corruptocrats feared for their fortune, they would steer Russia's policy into calmer waters.  On the other hand, personalized sanctions is also the petty strategy of Obama and the left in America who try to attack and isolate people like the Koch family, rather than win a fair policy fight.
