# If the friendly and hugely powerful alien tells my organisation, more than once, that bullets are not the best way to deal with a problem, then I will have a team of competent planners come up with some less violent plans. (Or more violent plans, if that's what they meant - sometimes a tank round or missile is exactly what you need.)

# I will keep in mind that even if the enemy forces consist of giant, menacing space vessels that earth maintains a highly skilled and expedient air force and I will make judicious use of it. Very few things in the universe can survive sustained fire from fighter jets and bombers. I will not leave stopping a fully armed alien invasion to [[Film/TheAvengers a small group of paranormal individuals to defend a fully populated city when I can explicitly have air forces in the area in less than a minute]].

# [[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial One child (or family) in the middle of suburban America knowing about the existence of aliens]] does ''not'' count as a BrokenMasquerade and does not warrant the deployment of a battalion of scientists and troops. Resources will be allocated accordingly.



# Aliens are to be observed at a distance, FirstContact will only be initiated if TheMasquerade risks being broken.

# Aliens are to be observed at a distance, distance to judge the capabilities of their technology without having it used on ''us'', FirstContact will only be initiated if TheMasquerade risks being broken.



** First contact should consist of 1 agent approaching slowly, open palmed while covertly covered by sniper fire from a distance. Shining a giant spotlight from a BlackHelicopter while various black [=SUVs=] pull up in a semi-circle tends to send the wrong message.
