China Doesn't Give a Flying Hunk of Space Debris about its Citizens

Actually, this is not really news, because really, what are a few rural villagers to the Chinese Government? It is a country founded on the principles of advancing the group while screwing over individuals if necessary. In other words, Communism.

But still, I find it kind of funny that when they launched a lunar probe recently, they did not even bother firing it at a trajectory where the debris of the boosters etc would land in the ocean. Instead, they let it fall on their own country, narrowly missing some rather shocked farmers.
