    First, it is unclear how much Syrian military equipment is or can be moved to Tartus.  The linked article mentions armored vehicles but not aircraft for example.

    Second, if we bottle up the equipment in Tartus and are willing to interdict its movement elsewhere, we have achieved the same effect as destroying it.

    Third, if your diary is correct that Assad plans to flee to Tartus as soon as the attack starts that may enable his isolation as well.
