This cartoon in a Sacramento newspaper was vigorously condemned by a lot of people who seemed to find the association with Vietnam very insulting. The cartoonist said that he meant to show that there are innocent victims of violence everywhere, and we're all vulnerable.

Personally it says to me that there is no us versus them. Office workers of New York running from a collapsing skyscraper aren't inherently any different from children in Vietnam running from napalm bombs. They're all human, all vulnerable, all victims of something they don't personally have anything to do with.
