Abstract
The article describes the academic discussion on the origins of the Cold War and the public debate caused by the Enola Gay (bomber that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki) exhibition at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., in mid-1990's at the time of “culture wars”. Conservative military-industrial lobby was instrumental in changing the new exhibition which was viewed as too “pro-Japanese”.
