I remember 1968. My elder siblings went to anti-Vietnam War demonstrations (but NZ had skin in the game, troops on the ground). Also, anti French nuclear test demonstrations.

France seizes Russian ship over sanctions https://t.co/39ZXHcmJTH
I would be surprised to meet an American, then or now, who did not attach greater political significant to domestic EXISTENTIAL THREATS than communist orphans rehabilitating the ruins of imperial Japan. What good did challenging MAGA do for adolescent boomers then, besides heating a sexual revolution.
I can almost appreciate your (pl.) ambivalence to the wan articles of NATO alliances today. US "intervention" in Korea and in "French Indochina" are parts of a piece of "shared history" that ostensibly belongs in the dustbin, but sticks to the shoes of MODERNITY like so much gum.
It does still leave traces in the culture, I suppose: for instance, France's colonial past is still permeating a lot of attitudes and political discourse, even today with our Gen-Xer president.
