The Amorality of UFOs

Copyright InterAmerica, Inc 
When one studies the panoply of flying chariot, flying saucer, and UFO sightings, from early times (and recounted in religious texts, including those in the Hebrew Bible or Old Testa- ment, the Hindu texts, and Oriental annals) right up through the modern era, one is struck by the non-inter- cession in human affairs, especially those that show the incipient evil of mankind, by the phenomenon. 
History is replete with the absence of God in mankind’s horrors, and UFO lore also shows that the ubiquitous phenomenon has not been in attendance when evils have occurred, on scales that any interplanetary expedition could not miss:
The Armenian Genocide (Armenian: Հայոց Ցեղասպանություն Hayots’ Ts’yeghaspanut’yun), also known as the Armenian Massacres and by Armenians as the Great Crime (Armenian: Մեծ Եղեռն Mets Yegherrn) was the Ottoman government's systematic extermination of its minority Armenian subjects from their historic homeland in the territory constituting the present-day Republic of Turkey. It took place during and after World War I and was implemented in two phases: the wholesale killing of the able-bodied male population through massacre and forced labor, and the deportation of women, children, the elderly and infirm on death marches to the Syrian Desert.The total number of people killed as a result has been estimated at between 1 and 1.5 million. Other indigenous and Christian ethnic groups such as the Assyrians, the Greeks and other minority groups were similarly targeted for extermination by the Ottoman government, and their treatment is considered by many historians to be part of the same genocidal policy.
It is acknowledged to have been one of the first modern genocides, as scholars point to the organized manner in which the killings were carried out to eliminate the Armenians, and it is the second most-studied case of genocide after the Holocaust. The word genocide was coined in order to describe these events. [From Wikipedia]
The Holocaust (from the Greek ὁλόκαυστος holókaustos: hólos, "whole" and kaustós, "burnt") also known as Shoah (Hebrew: השואה, HaShoah, "the catastrophe"; Yiddish: חורבן, Churben or Hurban, from the Hebrew for "destruction"), was the mass murder or genocide of approximately six million Jews during World War II, a program of systematic state-sponsored murder by Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, throughout the German Reich and German-occupied territories.
Of the nine million Jews who had resided in Europe before the Holocaust, approximately two-thirds were killed. Over one million Jewish children were killed in the Holocaust, as were approximately two million Jewish women and three million Jewish men. A network of over 40,000 facilities in Germany and German-occupied territory were used to concentrate, hold, and kill Jews and other victims.
Some scholars argue that the mass murder of the Romani and people with disabilities should be included in the definition, and some use the common noun "holocaust" to describe other Nazi mass murders, including those of Soviet prisoners of war, Polish and Soviet civilians, and homosexuals.

There are the bombings Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and today the Syrian conflict, the past and  (ongoing) genocidal African “wars”:
The Rwandan Genocide was a genocidal mass slaughter of the Tutsis by the Hutus that took place in 1994 in the East African state of Rwanda. Over the course of approximately 100 days (from the assassination of Juvénal Habyarimana and Cyprien Ntaryamira on April 6 through mid-July) over 500,000 people were killed, according to a Human Rights Watch estimate of the death toll have ranged from 500,000–1,000,000, or as much as 20% of the country's total population. [From Wikipedia]
The Babylonian exile of the Hebrews [circa 587 B.C.], at a time when flying “chariots” were rife in the texts, and going back to the extinction of the Neanderthals, about 30,000 years ago, when cave drawings and pictographs seem to indicate something odd was flying in Earth’s sky, one gets no clue that anyone or anything interceded.
The phenomenon, like God, remained aloof and disinterested, from a moral standpoint.
There are some reading this who will ascribe that indifference to a like kind of scrutiny that scientists engage in when studying ants, or other insect life, or African animals and other fauna.
Then there are those who think UFOs do not exist so my conjecture is remiss in its premise.
But assuming that UFOs and the disks before them contained sentient beings, as some texts indicate (the lost books of Enoch, or the Ezekiel scripture) and the behavior of UFOs in our time show intelligent maneuvering, one has to conclude that any sentience involved is amoral.
That is, the total decimation of human species is something of no concern to visitors from space or time.
What do UFO enthusiasts of the ET persuasion have to say about this?
What do UFO skeptics have to offer about man’s inhumanity to man, leaving UFOs out of the equation? (Yes, that is not a UFO-based topic – off topic here – but of interest to see if UFO skeptics are as disinterested as the UFO creatures seem to be in my suggestion.)
