setting the above as you last rule, in combination with setting the
POLICY of the INPUT chain to DROP, will log all packets dropped by the
INPUT chain.  similarly:

  iptables -A OUTPUT -j LOG --log-prefix "FW DROP OUTPUT: "

will log all packets dropped by the OUTPUT chain; which in your case,
should show you what Aleksandar already pointed out--you don't allow
ESTABLISHED packets out through the OUTPUT chain.
