Im afraid this cannot be achieved with simple static routes, you need to
setup a interceptor proxy so outgoing http traffic is intercepted by
your router and then transparent redirec it to your squid box.

If you alrewady have a debian box with squid I recommend to setup a
firewall on it with two interfaces and use it as your default gateway,
this way you can use transparent proxy.
