I just finished watching a rerun of an old Law and Order, in which McCoy prosecutes a woman for a murder committed during a 1968 protest of the war in Vietnam, with much discussion of "an immoral war," and charges that "the real criminals are in Washington." She finally agrees to a plea deal of manslaughter for 8-1/2 to 20 years. In the closing scene McCoy muses, “She’ll be in jail until 2003. I think the 60’s will be over by then.”

That was, of course, the year that we invaded Iraq.
