Yes, well traveling South from Detroit puts you in Canada, too. What's your point? Anyone who puts Canada being South of the USA is silly or has a hard time spelling M-e-x-i-c-o.

Half of those could easily have another direction added though. And I don't mean those going north from USA and end up in Mexico. Brunei is east and west as well as south for example

Trek222 is correct. There are many places in Uruguay where you could travel straight west and end up in Brazil. The same technicalities apply in most of the other answers too. For example, if you travel straight south from Detroit, USA, you'll end up in Canada.

Feb 2, 2019
Well, those might still be technicalities. However, look west from Sweden and you find both Norway and Denmark are correct. Both are, mainly west of Sweden and neither would considered to be mail in another direction, if anything Norway could be considered north of Sweden.

If you travel straight north, from everywhere in Sweden, you will always end up in Norway, even though, from a small part, you have to pass Finland.

Or you could just acknowledge that if you know there is a northerly point in Argentina at which you can cross west into Bolivia, you surely know that 95% of the Argentinian border straddles Chile, and you could just write "Chile" and move on.
