Piezoelectric effects are produced by electricity, electromagnetic energy is not electricity, it has no charge. In order to produce Piezoelectric effects there must be an electrical field.

The United States apparently possesses an "earthquake weapon" that set off the catastrophic quake in Haiti and killed 200,000 innocents. Don't believe it's true? Just ask Hugo Chavez.
Citing an alleged report from Russia's Northern Fleet, the Venezuelan strongman's state mouthpiece ViVe TV shot out a press release saying the 7.0 magnitude Haiti quake was caused by a U.S. test of an experimental shockwave system that can also create "weather anomalies to cause floods, droughts and hurricanes."

Since you asked why perhaps i should ask you why would the US ( provided they actually have such a weapons capability) would not do it given what the US government have done to Haiti in the last hundred years? When you have familiarized yourself with the history in question i think you will be able then focus your attention on how instead of the why.

I tried to look at this taking into account my understanding of current technology, and the current geopolitical situation, and not the policy in the past.
I agree some thing the US and other colonial powers, such as France, have stolen any thing not hammered down.
It's one thing to steal raw materials, and take advantage of a corrupt government. Haiti is certainly not the only government we have taken advantage of.
Governments usually do things because they will get something out of it.
To be cold, we have been spending a huge sum on relief. To cause an Earth quake where you have a country ground into dust.
And lets not forget the 250,000 dead, (as of now), many of the injured are being treated on ship and in the US. Again to be cold, causing an earth quake in Haiti is just not cost effective. Also; Regards.
