There's also the possibility that these "sanction" are purely pro-forma, so that, when Bush makes a speech where he solemnly declares that Iran has tried to purchase make significant quantities of yellowcake enriched uranium, he can say, oh, look, we tried inspections, and we tried sanctions, and neither of those work, guess we have to go to war...

That's what I suspect, too, that the sanctions are meat for Bush's political base. If so, that's a really lame reason for sanctions.
