I think the premise if off. A true civil war is going to involve military commanders choosing sides. Once that happens, then it's on.

I would read all you can about whats going on in Syria now, 'them' is the Syrian army/government, 'us' is a mixture of every Muslim creed/faction/splinter group you could think of, sometimes fighting the Syrian army, sometimes slaughtering any civilian they come across, civil war at its worst, just read.

Given the absolute contempt for government by society today, I see no way for government to ultimately come out on top if a civil war were to erupt. I am sure they are aware of this. Whether or not they decide to chance it is another story. They seldom make good choices. There are politicians on the citizens side as well though. They are the ones screaming about protecting the Constitution.

I'ts moronic drivel from people that have more guns than they have IQ points.
The same people will argue about all our soldiers getting killed in [insert name of foreign country here], but they want to have these same soldiers lined up in their crosshairs?
Any civil war on American soil would also result in a number of opportunist nations stepping in to "help".
Many a faction would even willfully invite said "help"; entirely ignorant of the cost such "help" would result in.
All in all, for the most part, it's loud mouthed morons that have self marginalized themselves because for whatever reason, they can't seem to live by the same laws that everyone else seems to be quite fine and okay with.
