Aliens would know about the attack way before they even did it, and give warnings and maybe even deactivate the nuclear bomb.

like i said, i could be wrong tho, i may have over looked that somewhere (the nuke thing)

Don't be silly, the missile is going to circle around the moon about 6 times to map out the moon (Probably to update the atlas for the moon)
So with that being said, this alien race would probably notice a missile circling the moon 6 times...
I got that info from the NASA website, they said it in some video.
Just before he died, he gave an interview to Carol Rosin, in which he basically said that in order to sustain the military-industrial complex that first a false threat of terrorists would be created and used on the public and then asteroids and finally a false alien threat. Well we have all seen the terrorist threat and it's quickly becoming tiresome for many. So perhaps a different enemy is what is needed? Considering his stature he's making quite a prediction in this interview. You can hear Carol Rosin talk about it below.
The 1,290-pound LCROSS and 5,216-pound Centaur upper stage will
perform a swing-by maneuver of the moon around 6 a.m. on June 23 to
calibrate the satellite's science instruments and enter a long,
looping polar orbit around Earth and the moon. Each orbit will be
roughly perpendicular to the moon's orbit around Earth and take about
37 days to complete. Before impact, the spacecraft and Centaur will
make approximately three orbits.
On the final approach, about 54,000 miles above the surface, LCROSS
and the Centaur will separate. LCROSS will spin 180 degrees to turn
its science payload toward the moon and fire thrusters to slow down.
The spacecraft will observe the flash from the Centaur's impact and
fly through the debris plume. Data will be collected and streamed to
LCROSS mission operations for analysis. Four minutes later, LCROSS
also will impact, creating a second debris plume.
