XiaoDeng
gentle amusement He watched with gentle amusement as women in flowing skirts and love beads put flowers in soldiers' guns, then sat on the lawn, holding hands, trying to levitate the Pentagon. What does 'watch gentle amusement' mean? (Watch with a pleasant, joyful look? Watch with interest? I'm not sure.)

I think it means that, even though he thought what the women were trying to do was silly, his state of mind was kindly and good-natured, as opposed to derisive or condescending.
