Not only that ... think about the planes of the orbits. What naturally occuring force acts perpendicular to the plane of a random orbit to bringing it into the ecliptic plane?

I'm sure you know the answer. Others either know or can guess, but for FTK I'll spell it out.

The answer is - there isn't one.

Changing the orbit plane is one of the most energy intensive things a spacecraft can do. Inertia is very good at keeping things in the same orbital plane. There is no natural force that would or could do that.
