China leads international support for Asian Earthquake

BBC is reporting the amounts of foreign aids that are pouring into Pakistan. China offers US$6.2m in quake aid to Pakistan. In comparison, here is what other countries have to offer:
UK $177,000
USA $100,000
Japan $221,000
Australia $380,000
World Bank $20m

now I can see why China is gaining goodwill in South Asia and is certainly providing leadership in the region. I am wondering why USA has to offer a lowly $100K to Pakistan, when Pak is supposedly the strongest ally in War on Terror.
