Ok, So what's the deal with "5", I have a general idea of what it is but i want specifics. You see it everywhere and in all forms, what the heck is "5"?, other than the number after 4, before 6. Did Freepers start this trend?

I think the Bush bots use it to imply that anyone who questions the War Decision is a fifth columnist. That is, an agent for the enemy posing as a citizen.

As another poster pointed out, unlike written arguments, images can not be directly refuted. Thus the use of these "5" images is an attempt to "shout down" logical debate with a sort of name calling.

When war is declared, I will rally 'round the flag like the rest of them. I would feel better about it if I knew Iraq was behind 9/11. That case has not been made.

Basically, the fifth column is one living in our country but a "secret" supporter of the enemy

And please note, to a Southern Nationalist (such as YT), a five-dollar bill is best used as toilet paper because of the portrait on its frontspiece...if it weren't worth five dollars, that is.

You don't even know what the debate is about, do you?

Who is arguing that Iraq is behind 9/11?

If you doubt that a man who used poison gas on his own people wouldn't use it on you, well, then, don't inhale too deeply for awhile.

The case has been made that Iraq was complicit. Thats enough for me.

when I was in a fraternity, during hell week we were all given numbers. One guy who was up against it was given the number "the square root of negative one, an imaginary number!" They would scream this at ol Banks. It was funny, of course, as it did not involve ME.

that would work well.

It's shorthand for "I don't have an original thought to add."

An appropriate rebuttal to the unoriginal, baseless and all-around idiotic proclamations of intellectual superiority by the puny minds of those who compare the U.S. of today to the Germany of the 1930's and/or the Soviet Bloc...besides, it takes more effort to find these fives than it does to write most of the pathetic drivel that passes for anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-Republican "original thought".
