Iran Says It Is Ready to Share Nuclear Technology - New York Times

Iran Says It Is Ready to Share Nuclear Technology - New York Times:
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran threatened Tuesday to begin hiding its nuclear program if the West takes any ''harsh measures'' against it -- Tehran's sharpest rebuttal yet to a U.N. Security Council deadline to suspend uranium enrichment or face possible sanctions.

Iran's supreme leader, meanwhile, said in a meeting with the president of wartorn Sudan that Tehran was ready to transfer its nuclear technology to other countries.

Iran's warning to the U.N. watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency, came from Tehran's top nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani. They were the strongest words of defiance yet ahead of a Friday deadline, set by the Security Council, for Iran to suspend enrichment of uranium, a process that can produce fuel for nuclear reactors or material for warheads.
Is it just me, or are they doing their best (worst?) to make a target out of themselves? Do they want the U.S. or Israel to attack them so they can start a "holy" war in the Middle East?

I feel like it's the '70s all over again.
