When Can We Call it Civil War in Egypt?

638 dead, and it looks to me like this thing isn't going to be over anytime soon. The Egyptian government just green lighted the police to start using deadly force. Which is an odd thing to do, given the number of people who were killed before the police had that authorization. If they're only now ok with the cops killing people, then surely this thing is going to get worse before it gets better.

So, when do we start calling this a civil war? That's what it look like to me.
