Hawking mistaken about aliens

I was taken aback recently by some comments by Stephen Hawking as quoted in the Times:

He suggests that aliens might simply raid Earth for its resources and then move on: "We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach."
It is perhaps presumptious of me to criticise Hawking on matters extraterrestrial (and who can say whether he was accurately quoted?), but this strikes me as extremely doubtful.
