Re: Why is Nemesis hated so much?
Shinzon and his Reman group also had the support of the Romulan military, who wanted the current leaders gone in order to make war with the Federation - a war that needed the Remans (who were retconned into the Dominion war as foot soldiers) to succeed.
That and the Romulans never faced a war before where the potential of them being overwhelmed by manpower existed.
