 Megan Trudell: The Russian civil war - a Marxist analysis (Part 2)
Another “objective” factor cited by Pipes is the “weakly developed sense of patriotism among the Russian population”, [97] a position which dovetails with the Menshevik view of the time of the Russian people as immature, unruly masses with no sense of what the revolution and war were about.
A rounded analysis of the politics of the civil war, however, must take into account not only the impact of social circumstances on political ideas and party allegiance but also the way in which the process of revolution transformed politics on a huge scale, and how resilient those ideas were in the civil war period.
By locating the civil war period in its historical context, by attempting to draw out the relative weight of objective circumstances and ideology in the most dramatic period of the revolution’s history, it is possible to counter those arguments with a more thorough understanding.

 No Civil War in Iraq
Notice that the death toll in the civil war in Somalia was over 50% of the expected national daily death toll (99 killed vs 197 expected deaths).
In fact the death toll in Iraq would need to go up by a factor of more than 10 to reach the (adjusted) death rate in the US Civil War and it would need to go up by a factor of over 17 to reach the (adjusted) death rate in the Russian Civil War.
And by the way, its a lot EASIER to kill people these days than it was in the US or Russian civil wars, thus you would expect a higher death rate for a real civil war today than at the time of the US Civil War.
