What I did hate was that all of the people trained to fight and handle pressure failed pretty spectacularly to handle the pressure and fight back properly. I think James Cameron just has something against the military. But I would love to see a modern and proper military vs aliens movie.
I assumed the clips of the guys with the weapons were some sort of security team. At around the 25 second mark, you see guys armed with the AR-style rifles among the people that appear to walk into the field with the wheat before encountering anything. I guess they could be just colonists with guns, but I'm guessing they're at least considered security -- but maybe short of being a space Marine.

I do think it'd be cool to see a proper military unit versus aliens, and I think this could possibly be a good story to lead into such a situation -- bringing back an impregnated body (or a few) to a military installation and dealing with that. Otherwise, I'd assume they'd just blast the aliens into submission from afar.
