Mentioned originally by Matt_Dravis in post #67, I haven't seen this point addressed adequately yet. That is, if the Romulan Senate were made aware of Hobus possibly exploding but still refused help how is the crisis supposed to be Vulcan's fault?
Even if Nero personally asked Vulcan for red matter, Nero isn't the Romulan Senate. Vulcan would have been abiding by Romulan wishes by refusing him also. Why isn't Vulcan telling everyone "Spock did tell the Romulans. They said 'No' and we (Vulcan) didn't really believe Spock either. And even if we did, remember that the Romulan Senate said 'No'. "
Did I miss something as the cause for blaming Vulcan despite proof otherwise?
