And what would their incentive be for re-joining Iran?
Let's see. They could join Iran so that the government in Tehran could come in, take over their oilfields, industry and natural resources, send friendly basiji militia to police them, and if they are good Iranian government could throw them a few bones now and then!! Like what Iran is doing in oil rich regions like Ahwaz!
The alternative is that they could stay the masters of their own domain, have freindly relations with almost all the countries in the world and thumb their nose at Ahmadi if they wanted too.
Oh Gee, this must be a tough choice for them!!!
