If we could agree (as people of earth) as to what action should be taken then maybe but if not, we'd be wiped out before we got started Dodgy

RE: If there were a hostile alien life form discovered close to Earth...
I'm not sure that it's true to say that people banded together in the past against hostile invaders. Often subsets of the local population split apart and joined the invaders. I think this would happen if any interstellar threat were to emerge. Some would pull together, while others split apart and try to make deals with the invaders.

The world blames gay sex for alien invasion. Gays sent as the front line defense force.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

I'd have to say no.

During WWI and WWII Britain was put in massive danger of being destroyed by the axis powers, however the Irish were too busy trying to continue their generational violence against England to care. So they went underground and the majority escaped from having to fight the common enemy in favour of fighting the old enemy.

The irish to which you refer, did not consider Germany as their enemy and in fact helped the Germans in this case the common enemy in question would be Engalnd.

Part of the point; why I don't think an alien invasion would unite earth Thumbsup

I think this scenario would be no different.
Depends how long the conflict lasts. If the fight continues for a couple generations then thats long enough to make all internal petty grudges fade away.
Maybe, but then someone in the internal would betray and switch to the alien side for personal gain (matrix! Big Grin )

OK, I can follow, just try not to infer especially when dealing with people Im unfamiliar with.

Never forgive, never forget, never for fun and never for free Wink

But, yes some of us old world types have long memories.
