From CJ Chivers’s blog:
An investigative journalist with CBS News, Jennifer Janisch, obtained the following images from a Syrian smuggler trying to peddle fake antiquities from Iraq and Syria.
I hope it goes without saying that this stuff isn’t Red Mercury. It’s a very well-manufactured and decorated canister for fooling buyers. Fortunately for whoever had this, it’s also not an explosive.
My favorite part of the picture is the line “NOT FOR SALE” at the bottom. Which is true. Because Red Mercury does not exist.
