US to file sanctions plan against Iran with UN this week?

Will the Obama administration finally present a concrete plan for sanctions against Iran to the United Nations?
US officials are telling The Associated Press that the Obama administration could circulate an outline of possible tough new sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program as early as this week at the United Nations.

The proposed measures would target elements the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps under fresh penalties as well financial institutions under existing UN sanctions resolutions. The officials say the measures are being finalized and prepared for debate in the UN Security Council.

Haven't we learned yet that Obama has no intention of doing anything really meaningful against Iran? Even if he files these "tough" sanctions against Iran, it will take months of arm twisting to get Russia and China to even consider a watered-down version of them and then more months before the UN votes on it.
There is NOTHING right now which will slow down Iran's quest for an A-bomb, except for:
- a government change (although we know that Moussavi supports the nuclear program, so no change likely here, or
- Israel attacking Iran and I think that window is rapidly closing.
Things are NOT looking good.
