That does not change anything, but a civilian that is just a bystander and wants no part of the war, in my opinion, does not quite exist in their society.
As already pointed out, there were (if you read the novels) quite a number of Kilrathi who did want to end the war, either by peace (the Rebels on Ghorah Khar, N'tanya, K'arakh and Shariha) or by winning the war the honourable way, regarding the Terrans as an equal race and not prey. There are a lot of hints that the Kilrathi were war weary as well.
