Yes... but not the humans of earth who you had been exterminating or enslaving. Why would you think they would help you?
Imagine... when the tide of WWII started turning... wouldn't it have been laughable of Adolf Hitler to turn to the UK or France and say "please join with me against the US"? That's what we are talking about here.
Foreign aliens come to earth... kill and enslave everyone they can... fight the remaining humans... then another alien comes... allies with the humans... you still keep trying to kill the humans and the new aliens... THEN when the tide fully turns and you are on the ropes... you go to the remaining humans and try to side with them against the aliens that actually had been helping those humans? And you think they will listen and ally with you? Really?
Even with the Volm still being mysterious and unknown intentions... the one thing you do know is... those first aliens want to kill and enslave you... so on what imaginary world would you ever ally with them?
Tom and Dan and company reacted in the only way that made sense... attack and kill everyone there... it was just an insane idea for Karen's band to even entertain that notion.
