Iran Raises Voting Age - Stop the Vote!

What's the easiest way to ensure that your messianic, spit-in-the-face-of-the-West, Armageddon-hungry, Holocaust denying yet longing-to-carry-one-out President does not suffer another humiliating defeat in local elections and is no longer threatened by freedom-seeking youth? Stop the Vote.

Iran has raised its voting age from 15-18. 15 quiet young, you think? Let's not forget that our Islamist friends used to send children in suicide waves by the thousands to fight the Iraqis back in the 80's.

Is the regime being precautious - afraid of this voting block? I'm curious what the respect-other-cultures and celebrate-them-with-acceptance lefties would say to this one. The right to vote? or Acceptance? The right to vote (i.e. democratic rights)? or non-intervention? Democratic rights for people in the Middle East -oops! or .... You get the point.
