HAARP Conspiracy Theory

Thirty-two people have been killed after a 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck near Bushehr in Iran, the place well known for seismic activity which also happens to be where they decided to build a nuclear power plant.
Rather than mother nature doing what she has been doing for billions of years, the finger of blame is being pointed towards America and/or Israel who are usually behind people dying in that region but this time even they are innocent. Or are they?
There is a conspiracy theory that someone out there, usually the Americans, have a secret weapon that can cause earthquakes and the HAARP program is almost always mentioned.
The theorists wave data released by the NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre after the Japanese earthquake in 2011 which mention a rapid heating of the ionosphere directly above the epicentre just days before the massive earthquake and resulting tsunami, a sure sign that HAARP, a scientific endeavour aimed at studying the properties and behaviour of the ionosphere, is involved somewhere.  
So could a country actually disturb the ionosphere and cause all manner of natural disasters elsewhere?
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) say in theory they could, they even have a name for it, Lithosphere-Atmosphere-Ionosphere Coupling, which is a geek way of saying heating in the ionosphere above a fault line but who has something that can heat the ionosphere above a well known fault line? 
In 1997, then US Secretary of Defence William S. Cohen gave an address at the Conference on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and US Strategy at the University of Georgia in Athens. When asked a question about terrorism, Cohen said: 'Others are engaging even in an eco-type terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves'.
So if the technology existed in 1997, you may wonder what advances have been made in the last 16 years, especially as after just 2 years, in 1999, the European Parliament were concerned enough to debate it and especially the HAARP which it called 'a weapons system which disrupts the climate using a ground based apparatus, to heat up portions of ionosphere with powerful radio beams' a debate that the US declined to be involved in when asked.
So the evidence is before us and in theory we could heat the ionosphere which could, again in theory, create earthquakes wherever a fault line lay and the Americans, in theory, have the equipment to do it.
Well i'm sold. And to think America had the nerve to have a go at North Korea for a nuclear test while they are directing deadly rays into the atmosphere to violently shake the Earth wherever they choose.
The only other alternative theory is that the Iranians were dumb enough to build a nuclear power station on a well known earthquake zone which frankly, is too absurd to even consider.

You do wonder sometimes what was going through peoples heads when they plan these things.
