To show them that they may have tossed him aside but look who was able to do what they couldn't.
Why wouldn't he try to kill them all instead? If someone has their life ruined by someone else, it seems more natural that the person who feels wronged would seek revenge against the people who wronged him, not try and impress them. That's why Shinzon's motive makes no sense, he is mad at the federation even though they had nothing to do making his life miserable and is trying to impress the people who did ruin his life.
I didn't see it as impressing them but more like rubbing it into their faces. Remember when there was a change in government they threw him away to the mines. He then came back and forced another government change.
That's pretty convoluted, killing all the Romulans would just make more sense then Shinzon trying to kill a bunch of people he had no real quarrel with, just rub it then the faces of the people he truly hates. Why not just kill the ones he hates rather then rubbing it in their faces. A defeated Federation would be a boon to the Romulan empire, Shinzon destroying the romulan Empire is far better revenge, because the people who hurt him, don't benefit.

This is why Shinzon is like Dr. Evil, instead of going with the most straight forward plan, he has to come up with some convoluted plan that would never work.
