The thing is, as a previous poster explained: Why not just seek out other planets if you're looking for ressources, instead of dealing with potential
hostility on the Earth? Sure, 'they' could be investigating Earth, but that doesn't mean hostility, necessarily.
What worries me, is that military people with loose trigger fingers and hillbillies with loose guns actually fired at these things in previous
decades, for no reason. (Or so the stories go..). In that case, 'they' could be getting the 'wrong' impression and refrain from seeking open
contact and 'friendship'. Perhaps that's why we are hearing less and less about actual landings and such by small craft.
Of course, all concepts like 'friendship' etc are problematic when speculating about unknown creatures, but I imagine that the survival instinct is
universal. If they're being shot at, maybe they'll just stick to themselves somewhere out of sight.
The Colares incident is slightly disconcerting, along with other South American reports. Nothing major though.
Eventually, it's impossible for anyone to say anything concrete about it except for what we know from the actual reports of contact.
