You know, the idea of aliens invading us has always struck me as a bit unlikely. 

For one, if a civilization is so advanced that they can travel the incredible distances between stars, their technology would be so far beyond ours that what use would we be to them?

I admit my unlikely stupidity.  I invaded and one noticed.  Not only that, but Earthling technology is baffling to me….I like it though, so I’ve stayed.

Still no one has noticed.

We noticed.  You have been monitored since your arrival here, and all your activities duly noted, especially your inability to program your I-Pod.

All your communications with the Mother Ship have been intercepted before they could be read.

The potato-salad recipe you have tried to smuggle back to your home planet is useless to you, for your planet cannot grow chives.

Give up and go home.

We have contacted you through Dan’s computer so you cannot track us.  Do not atempt to ask Dan about us, for he has been incapacitated, and will have no memory of our visit.  We chose Dan for this because of the lack of effort it takes to neutralize his mind.

It seems logical that the more advanced a civilization is, the more likely it is to be benevolent; this is a bit of an assumption, but they survived themselves, didn’t they?

Based on the assumption a war on their planet with advanced weapons would annihilate them.
After all, If you can do interstellar travel, why not fight on another planet, or just destroy it so no-one wins.
Or if there is no fighting and warriors get bored, they just invade another planet.

If there are aliens among us (mutants there are wink ), they have just arrived with a hiperdrive and will get active in a few days.
Or they have been here for a long time (sub-light travel -> take your time) and are working to make the earth an ‘asset’. Whether in trade, for resources or for technology or culture.

After all, I assume, different species have a different perception and evolution. Letting us do all the work is easier. (read: Let the Humans do all the probing cool grin ).
