IDF to use bunker busters against weapons tunnels?

You hear an idea like this and you have to wonder why they didn't try it sooner.

The IDF is proposing using bunker busters to collapse Hamas weapons tunnels along the Philadelphi corridor (see map). But they will wait for the next time there is a confrontation with Hamas.
Senior IDF officials have created a plan that would use bunker-buster bombs to fight weapons smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Sinai, according to Channel 10 news. The plan has reportedly been presented to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who may put it in use the next time Hamas and Israel clash in Gaza.

Egyptian forces have been largely unsuccessful in stopping the flow of weapons from Egypt to Gaza, and Gaza terrorist groups have recently been importing advanced weapons such as Grad missiles and Iranian-made mortar shells for use against Israeli communities. Bombing the Gaza border with BLU-509 shells capable of hitting targets 15 meters below ground would immediately destroy the current tunnels network and put a halt to smuggling from Egypt, IDF officials say.
If the bunker busters would destroy the tunnel network, why wait? Better question, how much of Gaza will collapse with the tunnels? This could yet be entertaining....

That would require initiative and boldness from the current Israeli government. I'll believe when I see it.

I'd like to see the tunnels sealed at one end and pumped with human waste...

let the human shit FLOW out on the other end, no matter where....
