Default Action & Adventure/Sci Fi Book idea

I had this strange dream a long time ago that inspired me to come up with this plot for a book. Here it is:

It is the year 2030. Aliens have invaded earth, and patrol the cities as if nothing bad has happened. They have made a treaty with the Governments of the World that states they will stay here and not harm humans as long as humans do not act as a threat against them. But recently rumors of an alliance have been floating around, so the aliens decide to attack the citizens.

Good, bad, abandon ship?

I'm writing one where humans are attacked by something, whether it be aliens or not. It's a trilogy set in todays time. Oh and I like your idea. Go for it!

I like it too, though you may want to elaborate on how exactly the aliens came to earth.

Oh yeah, I would most definitely elaborate. This is a very rough idea. I'm trying not to come up with any more elaborate "ideas" since I'm already writing a 300-400+ book(I have a 'preview' posted up)and I also have another 2 book ideas, two short stories I am writing, and than this. So that's five projects I have going on... lol

seven books. Different books, two trilogies, and about five or six still in the making plots. 300 to 400 pages? Wow. That's awesome. I couldn't do that if my life depended on it. My longest is on 88 pages and it's still just over half way.

Eighty-eight pages is still good. My longest story I ever finished was about fifty handwritten pages, I never typed it.
