I don't know how many of you are familiar with the term "prime directive"? This term comes from the fictional universe that exists within Star Trek.
The point is, and I will lay it out, is that I believe that there has to be a plan for us that comes from the other beings in this Galaxy. That although some of these civilizations may not even register who or what we are, there are others who do.
1) Multiple Alien species exist.
What does this prove? Well, we all know of Drakes equation, and using that, we can assume that there are thousands of planets where life evolved to advanced societies.
2) We do not have a plan for contact, but they will.
I don't think that there is the ability to prepare for such a varying possibility.
And that through that contact, they have adopted a ruling body that regulates such things.
3) We may be a pawn in an intergalactic political battle.
4) They are not here to harvest us or our resources.
Anyway, that is it. I think that using this theory, one could go to bed at night knowing that "War of the Worlds" is just a movie. I know the thread title is slightly misleading, but can you argue with it?

The first country that is attacked and refuses to deliver a counter attack will be the first one on its way to a higher way of life. Were stuck in this cycle of trying to fight violence with violence and that only breeds more enemies and violence.
I think the higher species is waiting for the masses to realize this as a whole and only then can they start to reveal themselves.

The first post of the thread did not have a strong point at all. I mean, you really should not make theories about extraterrestrial beings based on what you see in Star Trek.
I will accept that some witnesses have seen what is believed to be conflict between varying races.
Between 1561 and 1566 residents of Nuremberg, Germany and Basel, Switzerland witnessed spectacular displays of spheres, disks and tubes zooming about the sky and engaging in an aerial ballet.
