I care little for US domestic policy, being neither American nor living there. And I find it incredible that we suddenly find so many people on this side of the pond who are concerned with goings on in a country with which they have no connection.
When the US made all flights smokeless that involved at least one US airport, it took just a few more years to effectively make all flights smokeless worldwide. FATCA is also just a US law. Environmental laws are another counterexample, as is (lack of) data protection. How were central banks all over the world forced to react when the US Fed dropped interest rates to virtually zero? Come to think of it, where did the financial products that eventually triggered the financial crisis originate from?

Examples that refute your approach abound. It's foolish to assume that domestic US laws have no effect abroad.
