Bear in mind that when it comes to counterinsurgency warfare;you need a certain amount of troops vis a vis the civilian population.

Apparently the Afghan troops are considered part of the solution when it comes to dealing with the Taliban.

If you're(from a Washington view)counting on the locals to maintain security in order to win and said locals are killing Western troops for the hell of it.

Well you're going to need a lot more then 40,000 extra soldiers at this point.

Has anyone considered the probability that, the training being given to the Afgan forces, is being used against the trainers?

This is an outrage! British forces should be used only for the defence of the realm, not supporting a greedy and corrupt rat and his so-called government. How many more UK, US etc lives are going to be totally wasted supporting these heathens.
