I'm not sure if I'm on board with the thesis that Civil War Crises cannot be fought mainly over political lines, without much regard for race, culture, or class. I think such an occurrence would be unlikely, but I've encountered stranger things in my studies. With the advent of 4th generation warfare, I think it's a possibility in this Crisis.
Anyway, the Spanish Civil War comes awfully close... but there are distinct class, religious, and cultural elements. I'm not really sure which was the driving factor. Some combination, certainly.
Also, one of my favorite Clash songs -- Spanish Bombs.
