If infinite amounts of planets amount of infinite chances to grow intelligence, the notion that all would be what we refer to as "peaceful" is a somewhat humoruous one. They might not even know that they cause "anyone" any harm, considering us with the same feeling as we feel when we look at, say, a rock.

There are multitudes of scenarios where a race might consider the resources of another important, the race itself potentially dangerous and in need of culling or just felt like a crispy snack.

Also, habitable planets do not grow on, you know, stars.

I think we don't need to worry about the aliens because we could blow up the planet with nuclear weapons. But you say, "Recall the reports of UFOs disabling nuclear weapons."

Well with that argument, who knows then?

We have the technology to detect deep into space, maybe the aliens can do that too, but in more detail, i.e. their "telescopes" are much better than ours.

So do you think aliens detected our planet, and came here looking for something specific?

Do you think aliens travel space like we supposedly do, just to research and understand the universe?

Do you think they need our help reconstructing their DNA because they are a dieing species?

Do you think they were chased out of their planet by an evil alien race? And they are here to warn/protect us from them? Or they are here because they cannot get revenge on that other alien race, but rather take us over instead?

Do you think they are ancient, and this is their home?

Do you think they want to colonize the universe?

Do you think they are breeding clones as soldiers to fight in a galactic space war sometime soon?

Do you think they are planning something?

Do you have a few extra quarters to spare?

Seriously though, it seems the more you search the harder it gets. For every intial question you may have, ten more successively harder questions pop-up!

Talking about some "unsolvable" gordian knot.....

Unprovoked, the danger is minimal. Nothing more than case-study.
Intervening, however, could be disastrous: A Proverbial Catastrophe.
