Breaking: US lawmakers introduce bill to arm Taiwan - Taiwanese Proxy war?

[Under 50%]
A group of Democrats and Republicans have introduced a bill that would authorize the Biden administration to create a new military aid program for Taiwan. Modeled after the 1940s Lend-Lease Act that allowed the US to arm the allied powers during World War II, the bill resembles legislation recently passed to boost weapons supplies to Ukraine.

Introduced by Representatives Michelle Steel (R-California) and Jimmy Panetta (D-California) in the House, and Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) in the Senate, the ‘Taiwan Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act’ would authorize the president to lend or lease weapons and military equipment to Taiwan, which Taipei would pay for over a 12-year period.

Could this be the intention of Pelosi's visit? To secure the weapon deal?
This could certainly be the definite reason for the CCP's "Playing with fire" comment.
Arming Taiwan as the next proxy for a war with China?

Everything seems to be lining up.
I fear for the USA.

Taiwan is our greatest partner in the Indo-Pacific region, and their continued sovereignty is essential to challenging the New Axis of Evil,” said Senator Blackburn.
“I am leading the effort alongside Representative Steel to empower our partner in their defense of Democracy.
Taiwan should know that the United States will support them with defense supplies – including weapons and machinery – regardless of what the Chinese Communist Party says.
Our legislation will proactively strategize U.S. defense policy in support of the Taiwanese people amid growing threats from Beijing.”

Senator Rick Scott said, “It is in the best interest of America’s national security to arm Taiwan and ensure it has the capacity to defend itself.
The Taiwanese government is one of our most important partners in the Indo-Pacific, a shining example of democracy next door to Xi's tyranny,
and a supporter of its like-minded neighbors in the face of threats from the Chinese Communist Party.
I’m proud to join my colleagues on this good bill to strengthen Taiwanese forces and again show that we refuse to bow to Xi Jinping’s hostile threats.”

You can be sure that Raytheon and Lockheed are hiring extra staff as we speak.

On the bright side all that older equipment gets replaced with the newest models. That actually makes our forces stronger because the difference between a non-upgraded Abrams from 2005 and a brand new one is pretty drastic.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe China/Taiwan are still technically at war? Similar to how NKorea and SKorea are?

If so, it makes me wonder how far the CCP will allow the USA to arm its enemy, and not be considered a co-belligerent in the conflict.

It seems as if the USA is effectively begging China to strike and give a reason for retaliation.
