No doubt Voldemort wanted to eventually secure world domination, but he would not have been so stupid as to advertise this fact. If anyone asked, he would have said he was simply trying to become the wizardly ruler of Britain.

Wizards in other countries might have:

  • Admired Voldemort's sheer power;
  • Had sympathies for Dark Wizards, or even been Dark Wizards themselves;
  • Been afraid of Voldemort, and hoped they could make a deal instead of fighting him;
  • Been confident of their ability to deal with Voldemort if he ever threatened their interests;
  • Had problems closer to home which occupied most of their attention and resources;
  • Had some sort of grudge against the British Ministry of Magic and been quite happy to see it fall; or
  • AnyA combination of the above.

The other side of this coin is that the British MM would have been reluctant to allow interference in what it saw as internal British affairs. Like politicians anywhere, they are proud and protective of their independence. A team of international Aurors marching in to deal with Voldemort would not necessarily have been welcome.

For a historical parallel, consider the rise of the Nazi party in Germany. Some people outside Germany were concerned; but others were ambivalent or positively welcomed Hitler's seizure of power. Even those who opposed Hitler never seriously considered a military invasion of Germany to prevent him from becoming ruler in 1933. They only went to war in 1939, when they were no longer willing to tolerate Hitler's external aggression.
