With any luck the predictions of now-Senator Lieberman will be pretty much irrelevant come November, but here were his takes on what's going to happen in Iraq.

So I am confident that the situation is improving enough on the ground that by the end of this year, we will begin to draw down significant numbers of American troops, and by the end of the next year more than half of the troops who are there now will be home.

So, Lieberman says in about 18 months there will be about 65,000 troops in Iraq.
