So true, It seems that they (people in general) think that if aliens come, they will just decide to rule us, or blow us up.

I bet they are cuddly lil gloppitygoos that just want to meet new people/beings, like if I was to travel to another country.

Yup.

But technically the bugs "attacked" earth first.

Futurama - "War Is The H-Word"

Bender and Fry volunteer for military duty to enjoy the benefits of the soldiers's discount. When war breaks out later that same day, Leela too decides to join the all-male ranks, under the guise of Lee Lemon, and creates quite a stir for her leader, Zapp Brannigan.

Travelling to a known place is diff'rent than exploring. Hu-mans have always brought destruction with them when exploring. Indeed, anytime two species (or even subspecies) meet, there is bound to be conflict. Even in the best case where resources are not an issue and there is mutual benevolence, there is still disease or other unforseen and/or unintended consequences. Said cuddly lil gloppitygoos could secrete deadly poison (to humans), for instance, or vice versa.

Here's a few previews, some spoilers in the second link:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=wzRXtgL8JTM (NSFW, youtube's clean, but let's just say it goes a little further in the movie IIRC Denise Richards is *fap*)
http://youtube.com/watch?v=MWhrGGrs3Ow&feature=related

It butchers the book, but it's humorous with lots of naked chicks, sex, and guys blowing up giant space bugs. What more could you want? :D

But the unedited (non-TV) version certainly has its moments.

Wow, I have never seen that before. I wonder if he kept screwing up his lines on purpose - "Damn! OK, let's do it AGAIN!!!" ;)

Hey,

It could be a lot worse ...

Have you seen Starship Troopers 2?

The only redeeming quality the movie has is ultraviolence.

Why look for a movie. Read a history book. You just described most of human civilization for the last three thousand years. Just replace 'alien' with 'other civilization'.

Technically wouldn't it still be aliens invading? I mean, by current standards ... ok I kid, I kid.

And Starship Troopers f'in owned. PERIOD!

What about Star Trek or Star Wars?

Well, there's that Futurama episode:

Zapp Brannigan: Here's our target men. It's a barren alien planet with absolutely no natural resources or strategic value whatsoever. Questions?

Soldier: Yeah, why is this worthless rock worth dying for?

Zapp Brannigan: Don't ask me, you're the ones who are going to be dying.
