Because satellites this is a satellite from decades ago and the US actually has pretty good planned reentries/design for end of life that doesn’t endanger people Vs China still literally drops massive rocket stages on Earth without planning.

Every US rocket has a flight termination system that self destructs if it goes off course to protect the people below, and they’re all launched over the ocean. China just drops the stages on villages as part of its design.
