Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"my point is that it is not a natural disaster or "act of God". It's the result of human decisions and policies. "

Well, that increases the strength of my point.
If you were to KNOW that there would be an earthquake, because it would be the result of policies, you'd be even keener to take it into account.
So, that the shock was human based does in no way lessen the pertinence of pointing it out if you think that a structure would not withstand it.

I am not even saying anything about whether it could withstand the shock. But if you think it can't, saying it only makes you intellectually honest, not someone trying to get Europe dismantled.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
