"China has also successfully attacked an orbital satellite, demonstrating capabilities that even the other super-powers (like the U.S. and Russia) currently lack."
The USA has demonstrated several ASAT weapons, as has Russia. In 1985 the US shot down one of its own satellites using an ASM-135 ASAT anti-satellite missile, and in 2008 also destroyed its own malfunctioning spy satellite using a RIM-161 Standard Missile 3. India is also developing its own capability.
