Fallout of China's ASAT Test

Apparently China's recent ASAT test could start a chain reaction that would endanger everyone's satellites.
Yale Globalization (not surprisingly) blames the US mostly for China's test. They do however, give China some blame:

In its defense, China will likely claim that American policy is hypocritical on
the question of weaponizing space. While there may be some truth to that,
nothing excuses the irresponsible stunt they pulled last month.

India is apparently building a missile defense system in retaliation to China's test.
