Your link shows that the US outspends PAKISTAN in total funds provided.

No shit. Last I checked the US GDP was at $15 trillion vs Pakistan's $210 billion.

For the 2010 Pakistan floods, the list of donating countries can be found here:

As can be seen, by far and away the biggest donor nation was Saudi Arabia.

As a share of it's income the US is generally stingy when it comes to aid. This isn't "sour grapes", it's just facts. A lot easier to donate $1,000 bucks when you have $10mn in the bank.
