We're not talking about Spock's boss (who, by the way, he had just beaten the hell out of as a result of his misidrected anger, hence the discussion about controlling anger toward Nero). We're talking about a war criminal and genocidal maniac. Hitler x 1,000.

This was not a normal everyday situation. Every expectation has its exceptions. Not acknowledging a desire to see somelike Nero destroyed is denying the inevitable.
