That reluctance is by no means any indication of compliance.  IAEA, which has my best 
wishes, could sooner suspend the motion of the earth around the sun than make Iran comply 
with any directive.  IAEA  (and the EU in general) is a source of derision for many Iranians, 
exactly because they repeatedly defy Security Council sanctions and ignore deadlines. Then 
they play a PR game and pretend to be the offended party.

No, I imagine that the real reason that no effective sanctions have been imposed is that 
Russia and China have too much to lose.  And if it is nationalistic thinking you hate, cast your 
gaze upon Iran (the ruling regime, that is).  Most of the world knows what game is being 
played there.  Iran is confident that once they possess just a few nuclear weapons, no one 
will dare to prevent them from making more.
