Reggae music star Shaggy has a plan to defeat ISIS terrorists, and it involves a lot of weed and reggae music.

The man behind "Boombastic" was asked how to counter the terrible band of murderous militants in Iraq and Syria in a recent interview in the Miami New Times, and he certainly delivered.

"ISIS can go f--k themselves," he told Dyllan Furness. "That's some crazy shit what they're doing. It's horrible, man. I can't see ... I don't get that much hate. I just don't get that level of evil. I can't understand it."

Interestingly the 46-year-old singer — real name Orville Burrell — who goes by "Shaggy" does have some military experience, having served as a Marine artilleryman during the Gulf War. But his strategy to fight against the self-proclaimed Islamic State is quite unconventional.

"If you're able to cut a man's head off, you're sick," he continued, "But right, music evokes emotion. So if they're listening to Shaggy music or reggae music, they're not going to want to cut somebody's head off. There're two thing you want to do when you listen to reggae: You get somebody pregnant, or you're f--king high. High people don't want to kill nothing; they want to love. They need to bag some Jamaican weed and distribute it amongst ISIS. I guarantee there won't be any more wars out there."

You hear that, DoD? Drop more weed, instead of high-explosive bombs.
