Why Did Iran Decide to Talk Tough to IAEA EU 3, and US?

Al Jazeera, never to hold any punches in talking up a Mid-East nation, says “Indeed, Iran has cunningly chosen the right time for attacking the positions of the EU in the negotiating process and of the United States, which is seeking to affect it. […] There are several elements that make the superpower's unlimited capabilities greatly doubted. […] Experts predict that if the U.S. attacked Iran, which produces almost three times as much oil as Iraq, this would push oil prices to $90-100 per barrel.

Why do other “Westerners” argue Iran’s intentions, when even Iran, and other Mid-East leading opinions see this as an opportunistic move by Iran to make moves they feel would otherwise illicit a military response?
