Do You Own A Property Abroad ?

"'Iranian' Skyscraper In New York Seized By US

A senator says "those who might want to play footsie with the Iranian government" have been sent a strong signal by the seizure."

Granted this is on a country level and a special case perhaps but it shows that a western government, as if we needed any proof, will just confiscate property if need be.

Why is this only relevant to someone who owns property abroad? A government can theoretically seize property from its own citizens, too, if it wants to (though obviously this is a bit politically more difficult than seizing property from the government of a country from which it is effectively at war).
