Wheras I say it's more than plausible that, after 200+ years of Romulan/Federation hostility, Nero would conclude that Spock deliberately waited until after Romulus was destroyed to stop the supernova.
What does that have to do with Earth?

And weren't the Romulans depicted as a society that lives off of conflict? After all, the whole entire point of Balance of Terror was to spark another war between the Federation and the Romulans.

Commander: No need to tell you what happens when we reach home with proof of the Earthmen's weakness. And we will have proof. The Earth commander will follow. He must. When he attacks, we will destroy him. Our gift to the homeland, another war.
So Nero's idea of Romulus being free of the Federation is actually counter productive.
Nero isn't in the Romulan power structure. His ideas would be different than the Praetor, the Senate or a military commander. His ideas about the UFP would be shaped by Romulan propaganda.
