Aliens reaping Earth
There are quite a few SF stories where aliens arrive to harvest the earth of its resources endangering all of humanity.

However, if resource strapped aliens bumbled into our solar system wouldn't they be able to get more resources for less trouble just by harvesting the other planets and/or the asteroid belt?

We could probably even charge them royalties for the privilege.

I seem to remember Greg Bear's Forge of God had something like this- Von Neumann machines invade and the aliens who are combatting them sacrifice earth (rescuing a small percentage of humanity), in order to stop them harvesting the asteroid belt which would be even more disasterous for the galaxy as a whole.
Why do I bother?

Trump makes the best deals. The deal he would make would be yuge, the biggest deal ever, so much winning, believe me.
