I'm going to make a short list
Aliens are real, and they want :
1. Humans to be extinct or culled as we clearly are destroying a beautiful planet, and the alien environmentalists see us as a blight on this pristine rock.
2. A new home, they have used all the resources on their planet, so earth seems like as good a place as any for a fresh start. This is something I can see humans doing if we live long enough to waste every last drop of water.
3. To kill us because they are straight up crazy. Kinda like the probe thing, definitely the sign of an unstable alien mind. This is something I can also see humans doing, both the probe thing, and the killing, sad, but true.
4. To enslave us. We are much cheaper than machines, and easily replaced.
5. Refuge. Think district 9.
6. Nothing much. They just fly in take some air samples here, and there. Probe a few people for "science" and generally stay out of the way, and off the radar. This is where genuine disclosure comes in, because at some point humanity as a whole needs to understand the world that they live in. Think the earth is flat, oh wait its not, kind of thing.
Aliens are not real, but ....
1. The powers that be want to cull the population, and a great way to accomplish this is to fake alien invasion. How ? Simple, saucers show up on local news reports blowing stuff up, people panic, and rush to wherever the news tells them, be it military bases, city centers, stadiums etc. They then tell military personal that the people seeking refuge are in fact infected with alien disease, and they must be "removed". Done, and done, all by special effects, movie magic, and government issue bullets.
2. False disclosure. What the heck is that ? Again its simple, the military complex gets money by making weapons, they get the government they control to disclose an evil alien threat that may exterminate all life on earth, and we can't afford to not protect ourselves. Whamo, space guns, and weaponized satellite platforms are costly, and in full production on the taxpayers dollar.
3. The government does it for the lulz because they are huge trolls.
There's so many more, but I don't want to type anymore. Hope this answers your question.

Well, thank you. I also respect other people' opinion, and I know that I'm not always right.
