    ... that the countermeasures are fully in place, and have been tested in analogous conditions in routine civil engineering construction in ROK, such as civilian subways or other tunnels, where the tests would be plausible parts of the construction work itself.  

    Seems to me that we should be able to use seismography to detect attempts by major Mexican drug cartels to tunnel into the US (as such tunnels have been found, some of them rather sophisticated).  But then the thing to do isn't to blow the tunnels, but to wait at the other and and use surveillance (in-place or drones or both) to track whoever exits from the buildings where the tunnels come up, and follow them to some apparently unrelated location, and "coincidentally" pick them up there.  The point being to use the tunnels as "honey pot" traps.  

    The above, subject to signal-to-noise ratio problems if the tunnels into the US parallel "noisy" infrastructure such as highways.  This would also seem to be a potentially fertile area for research.  

    "Minus one vote for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
