20. No way in hell.
To trigger an event requires a release of energy (Think huge H-bomb units of energy.) in the correct spots to allow the stuck plates to slip past one another. So we would have to go to Iran itself, to the epicenter, (deep underground) to do something there to trigger the event.

I suppose that the tinfoil hatter would counter that we did it remotely. This is even more absurd. We would have to feed the energy into some sort of machine here to get it to trigger there. Since no process transmitts energy with 100% efficiency, then there would be nuclear bomb sized leakage of energy at the transmission site, which would destroy the transmission site.

Tinfoil hat theories really annoy me.
