    "out there", compared to, who? Dennis Kucinich?

    The gravity well means it's far easier to extract any raw materials they might desire from asteroids or from some of the other orbiting bodies like Jupiter or Saturn's moons, in greater quantities as well. If they came to earth, it's because they want the planet itself.

    They'd pay us about as much attention as a lumberjack does the bird's nest in the tree he's about to cut down.

    You do know that probably every first-world country on Earth probably has a similar post and contingency plans for such an event, right?

    Agreed. We should send David Bowie. He's already farther out there then anyone else and he rocks.

    How many times must this be repeated?

    Rape victims in Africa. UN on the ground does nothing

    DarFur genocide. UN does nothing

    Greatest money scandal in world history, oil for food program. UN members directly involved.


    Now please peddle your claims of blissful innocence to these atrocities somewhere else.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    I'm well aware of these claims and the vast majority are entirely valid.

    I want to know how you expect the UN to do anything when almost none of it's member nations want to even lift a finger to do their part? The US sent a representative to the UN that had, on record, said that the UN building in New York would be all the better for losing the top twenty floors. People give the UN nothing and expect it to do everything, then they point when the UN fails and use that as a justification for not doing anything.

    No one expects the UN to do anything of value, because most of it's member nations don't want to lift a finger to do their part. All the more reason to disband the orginization.

    Then where do you go to settle international disputes? Where do you go to punish nations for wrongdoing?

    The UN say that they are having a hard time deciding between Gaddafi and Ahmadinejad for the role of the ambassador.

    Re: U.N. to appoint space ambassador to greet alien visitors

    But Professor Stephen Hawking has warned that alien interlopers should be treated with caution.

    He said: “I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. The outcome for us would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”
    Oh how very true.

    Do people actually think if Aliens did come to this planet, they'd be all loving and pacifistic. Please.

    They'd rape our resources and probably enslave us. No more than what we'd do to others when we travel out of space and discover new planet.
