I now understand your question and from a fiqh perspective. If if this is the case like you say (as i dont knw) either direction to the ka'abah is sufficient. Allah also states in the quran he is the lord of the east and west and whichever direction one faces (if one is not sure) it is permissible.

N.B You need not been sarcastic i aint doing no propaganda i was simply stating the fact

From mainland USA,the Ka'abah can be located both to the West (via pacific) and East (via Atlantic). So I require a practical answer not stories. Cheers.

Anywhere you are in the world you could use a compass to help you indicate the direction of the ka'abah. Technology has resolved the problem and it was the early muslims that develped the tool called a compass to solve this problem.
