It's because Nero has changed the Timeline and ultimately believes he has changed Kirk for the worse by altering events and he will never Captain a Starship.

What Nero fails to realised that regardless of the timeline changes Kirk is still destined to be the greatest Starfleet Captain ever, even if this new timeline throws obstacles at every turn.

It's STILL STAR TREK AS WE KNEW IT.
Of course it is!!

Different events are shaping the lives of the characters who bear the names of those were know in the "real" timeline. Some events we know would be in their future will never happen because of alterations.
Both timelines are 'real' and it's likely that even with the changes, they still shape Kirk into a man with the same characteristics and traits.

Put it this way: why would so many characters battle the effects of Nero's interference, only to let all his changes play out unchallenged in the end? This "everything we know is gone" assumption basically implies that Spock, Kirk et al fail entirely at defeating Nero's attack on history, and they will let his plans affect their future unabated.

Do you really think Nero wins in this film?
That would be a twist

That would make it intresting...forcing Kirk to become closer to the one we know.

OTOH, it might be George Kirk that Nero is after...

Quote from JJ: "There were a handful of things I felt we had to retain so that when people glance at it they’ll go, ‘Yep, that’s Star Trek".

They retained a handful of things and threw out the rest.

Yep. It's Trek as we know it alright.

So Vulcan MUST be a gonner then - that confirms it.

I think it depends on what he chose to retain. Not everything merited it.
