I'll tell you why.

Because countries of the same ideology don't fight eachother.

I'm sorry to tell you that your nice theory doesn't hold water in the real world.

Countries of the same ideology don't fight each other?
Now let's look at the Polish regime. Formally a democracy, it was actually authoritarian, militaristic, fairly anti-Semitic and rabidly anti-bolshevist.

A regime that invests in militaria doesn't charge with horses :roll:

Ideology was far more important back then, remember the clashes between the party adepts, so is possible that ideology had to play a bigger part at that time then we imagine today.

However, ideology or not, ww2 started over territorial and world domination issues. The label of "ideologic war" was made up at a later time - of course, not taking into account Goebbels's ramblings (or Soviet ones, as well):o
