I read a story a couple of years ago, it featured a race of primates (not us) in a universe filled with primarily bipedal apes. This race were the
leaders of a empire, that grew by monitering a races growth, until they reached self destruction (this was mostly limited to thelarger hominids). At
which point they'd sweep down, rescue the survivors who would then be endleslly thankful to them for saving themsevles, and continue along.
Eventually they reach Earth during the Cold War Era, and they wait for humanity to destroy itself, so they can gather up the useful survivors and go
Just to make it clear, they believed they were the moral high ground, and I'm sure there are folks on ATS who would agree. Anyway, as the Cold Ward
whent on, Humanity didn't destroy itself. SOmething remarkably uncommon. The aliens start to consider inciting the war, and begin abducting folks to
try to understand why the war hasn't erupted. They are shaken when one of the abductees compare them to vultures.
