Is it possible to use time travel to create an entire army of clones and take over the world?

For clarity of method, here’s the question in full:

After watching the documentary ‘Looper’ at the cinema recently it got me thinking…

When time travel is invented, if I was to transport myself 5 minutes back in time I would meet myself from 5 minutes ago. So there are now 2 Mes. If the Me from 5 minutes ago waited for 5 minutes like before, then transported himself back in time 5 minutes… There would now be 3 Mes.

So using this time cycle is it possible to create an whole army of 1000′s of Mes which I could use to take over the world?
