    Watergate saturday night massacre. The whole Watergate plot was bad enough, but Nixon's dismissal of independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox, and the resignations of Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus was the straw that broke the camel's back.

    In the frame of military and world-wide politics, I say that it was Hitler's Declaration of War on the United States after the U.S. declared war on Japan. He finally gave Roosevelt the relative freedom to openly concentrate American resources on what was considered the greater threat to the U.S. security.
