Angry Birds Middle East Mashup

Russian designer Egor Zhgun (LiveJournal) remixes pop culture and politics, to humorous effect. His latest is a mashup of "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?"; the game Angry Birds; and current Middle Eastern politics into an animated political cartoon: Three Big Pigs.

Hilarious, especially North Korea at the end. Thanks for this.

So...um...

Was this pro-American intervention? Or what? It doesn't seem like it, but it seems like it could be read that way.

I dunno. Not feeling smart today, I guess.

I missed the North Korea bit until you mentioned it, Daddy-O, thanks!

It's slightly mocking of US intervention, as shown by the US hesitance of attacking the North Korean pig who built his house out of nuclear bombs.
