Well technically the Mandarin (even if it was "an idea" and not a person) was a bigger threat to Stark personally than both Stane or Vanko so in that regard I would stand by my quote.
But it's fake. It would be like having the Joker turn out to not be the ones doing all the harm in TDK.
I can't agree with that assessment at all.
