I can't say whether I believe they come in peace or not.
I can say that they could hide among us, or annihilate us, yet they do neither. (Or do they?)
First and foremost, I want to put it out there that I believe 100% that there are other civilizations in the universe.
I have personally witnessed “odd” things in the heavens on three occasions.
Two of the three can be chalked up to “weird lights”.
Here’s the thing:
If we are to assume that these civilizations exist and possess the technology to travel space in order to visit us, then we must accept that they are far more advanced than we are, yet:
They seem to have a need for lighting.
Our own little military can operate just fine in the dark, without any lighting.
We can actually see them.
While our governments have stealth that allow craft to go virtually unseen, their craft are visible, both by eye and our caveman-like radar.
Which brings me to the point:
Either they want to be seen, or they don’t.

Hard to say really. What was it a previous thread said, something like scientists have discovered 42,000 earth-like worlds within range of our sensors, telescopes, etc? So if aliens even exist why would they come here? All I can think of is:
1. To keep an eye on us because humans are dangerous. Nukes and warp drive = bad combo.
2. It's teenage aliens with the family "car." We know teens can't drive anyway.
3. They're toying with us, "Look there's a human, flash the lights."
- or -
4. It's just secret human military craft nobody wants to admit to.

Further, the majority of 'legitimate' UFOs sighted and reported are misidentification, and/or observation of unidentified man-made terrestrial aircraft. It's not uncommon for people to mistake Venus, Jupiter, or Spica for a UFO, and it's quite common for folks to also misidentify Chinese Sky Lanterns, as well as mylar balloons, and even Lenticular Cloud formations and other meteorological phenomenon.
